Parts and Labour

An experiment devised by John Chilver and Brighid Lowe.

Artists were invited to provide instructions for works to be produced in not more than 2 hours by hired hands.

The artists are paid 1 hour at the UK minimum wage and the hired hands are paid 2 hours. Each work is thereby defined as the product of 3 hours labour paid at minimum wage. An hour for conception and 2 hours for execution.

The artists are provided with a common list of materials, defined by the curators, for which they determine operations or actions to be done. All the works are therefore produced within uniform constraints of materials and time.

Artists:
Leah Capaldi | Marc Camille Chaimowicz | Charlie Jeffery | Gareth Jones | Francesco Pedraglio | Adrian Pipe | Martina Schmuecker | Florian Slotawa | Sarah Staton | Richard Wentworth.
