Work Ethic

A 45 minute performance in which three performers repeatedly manipulate office chairs. They rock on them, push them with their bodies and faces, then straddle them. The actions can be read as the mundane movements of bored office workers or simulated sex acts. The power dynamics between figures constantly mutate as the actions and genders rotate.

Shown at the Royal College of Art Degree show. June 2018. Photos by Jon Baker.
