The performance questions the tension between the material conditions of human existence and the logic of desire, and how these two areas interact within each individual. The performer is particularly interested in the mutually conditioned relationship between desire and class-consciousness, or the relationship between social being and social consciousness. Can abilities and needs really be in harmonious relationship at any time and on whom/on what does this depend?

Let’s Work! (20222023) deals with the problem of work. It invites us, through various artistic situations set in specific environments, to reflect on the meaning and value of work, the ways in which we experience work in everyday life, and how art is at work. In the first chapter (2022), artworks are contextualized in locations that play a constructive role in society in terms of the formulation of labor policies, and more specifically the formulation of strategies in the field of cultural labor, in public services that respond to labor problems, in institutions that educate the upcoming workforce, and in spaces that play a role in contemporary art practices. The spatial and temporal positioning of works for (re)viewing by both institutional staff and invited and casual visitors aims to widen the field of visibility of the artwork and its reception. In the second chapter (2023), the artworks will be presented in their entirety in exhibition and performance formats.
