Work Ethic

 Work Ethic, performance, durationL 45 minutes, 2018

Three performers repeatedly manipulate office chairs. They rock on them, push them with their bodies and faces, then straddle them. The actions can be read as the mundane movements of bored office workers or simulated sex acts. The power dynamics between figures constantly mutate as the actions and genders rotate.
