Abstract

Martin Fowler, from the Arts Research Initiative (ARI) research group at the Institute of the Arts, University of Cumbria, gives a lecture about his recent exhibition 'Supermarket', which took place at Carlisle Market Hall in April 2019 (see http://insight.cumbria.ac.uk/id/eprint/4674/). As part of his PhD research, Fowler recreated a shop and all the types of commodities you might find in a convenience store, as a critique of capitalism and commodity. 'Supermarket' explores the nature of capitalism's commodity culture, through a materialist analysis of reificiation, the fetish object and cultural production. Drawing from the work of Marx, Gramsci and Williams, 'Supermarket' functions as a theory-in-practice enquiry, applying methodologies of collage, found-object and simulacra, to the (re)staging of the conventional British market stall.
