Labour #1 is a collaborative video documenting the act of transformation of a nondescript room quite far from pristine into an exhibition space. Working together in this seemingly banal task has prompted us to rethink our relationship with the places where we show our work, as well as our own position towards the notion of manual labour.
Labour was produced by the Labourers' Collective, composed by Bruno Freitas de Oliveira, Inês Bento Coelho and Inês Tavares.
