Event description

Description

Peregrination WERKFORCE is a mobile sculpture that draws together a group of people and material forms as co-producers through the actions of making, wearing and appearing. The work is formed as part of the Melbourne Prize for Urban Sculpture 2017


The work consists of more than 30 canvas, apron-like rectangles that become animated as they are strapped onto human bodies for daily wandering around Federation Square and adjacent city areas.


The canvas surface applications reference constructivist graphics and texts that broadly reflect an interest in labour conditions, ‘The Gig Economy’, ways of being in terms of work and idleness, working hard and hardly working, precarity, passing time and getting by. Several of the aprons bear marks of artistic labour, such as paint residue and evidence of wear and repair.


Peregrination WERKFORCE transpires through a joining of networked (human and material) elements across time and space to create a tangible, social situation (and spectacle) to walk and talk about work and creativity.


The cloth constructions can be viewed in The Fracture Gallery at Federation Square when at rest or via their daily movements or peregrinations. These expeditions can be observed on most days between 12:30 - 1:30 pm between 13 and 27 November or occassionally large group bookings can occur at other times. You are invited to join the peregrination as a walker. Please book through this page. (under 15 years old? please bring an adult).

The walks are gentle meanders around the area to look at and listen to the works in the prize and other occurrances and exhibitions.
