Shift Work : Cathedral of Joy

£6.99

Product description

Over a period of an extended working week, André Stitt & ritz Welch worked at The Lab New York City on a series of paintings. The paintings were made 'live' and were disciplined by a series of 'shifts' that would reflect the working patterns of 'shift work' activity in New York City at various times throughout the week. This meant that, in effect, the artists work took place during scheduled periods within 24 hour shift for a period of seven days.

Stitt & Welch investigated perceptions of the artist's method of production as "work" though a collaboration carried out in full view of the public. The means of production allowed for an exposure of the artists work practice viewed continuously though the windows of The Lab Lexington Avenue & 47th St., New York.
The Lab became a public studio for the exploration of the artist as common worker and an artistic activity that exposed the performance of painting as both labor and cultural production.

The live work took place from the 9th-16th April 2009 with the resulting studio/production residues exhibited as installation from the 17th-24th April 2009.

Slight shelf wear to the head and tail of the spine,otherwise in fine condition.
