Asking the viewer to “un-work until you’re fired,” the Brisbane/Lima-based artist explores and re-imagines modern corporate language through sound, textiles, robotics and coding. Unpicking the “idea of productivity as an imperative” and interrupting “today’s economic environment,” the work invites the audience to reclaim agency.
In addition to the installation, an accompanying event The value of vague will take place on September 20. The night will feature sound works within the space, including a reading of a text written for the show by Holly Childs, while the seize the means of production compilation recently premiered on AQNB by Xquisite Nihil plays throughout, as well as live set by Raquel. Reading will present an HTML, sound and visual presentation ‘Pure reason and bass.’
