Hardly Working

Hardly Working
Wendelein Bakker, Clare Fleming, Deborah Rundle, Shelley Simpson

12th October – 4th November 2017

Sharing an interest in labour and the ethics of work within contemporary society, the artists in this exhibition approach the subject from a diversity of perspectives. Mindfulness apps, baby induced exhaustion, prospecting for gold and peace lilies are co-opted to propose new, prompt conversations. Invariably, each artist questions the nature of work and asks, ‘who is working for whom, and on whose terms?’
