An exhibition of recent works by the artist; including broken paintings, some fake plug sockets, some benches, and an infinitely long screen saver. 

The artist hopes that the show will appeal to national gallery membership card holders. It features some paintings on a wall, some benches to sit on, and some unused plug sockets. The exhibition space is also frequently used as a corridor, so like the national gallery there is a strong chance someone else will stand or pass in the way whilst visitors look at the work. The benches will also aid visitors to stare really hard at the paintings without getting too tired, or rest while they fail to charge their phones. The screensaver at the entrance/exit to the exhibition will remind visitors how to conduct themselves during their visit and then again as they head downstairs towards the gallery cafe.
