Meaning of Labour: Performance (artist Kate Gilmore)

Kate Gilmore: Walk the Line

Performance at Exchange Square in the financial district of the City of London. The structure is in keeping with the measurements of typical office cubicles and corridors in the neighbouring modern office blocks, where countless women work, perhaps without ever having noticed or reflected upon the effect their daily activities have on their body and stamina. The women who participate in Kate Gilmore’s project will resemble typical office workers and come from different backgrounds. With this art work Kate Gilmore comments on the meaning of labour and life in everyday conditions, and skilfully turns a mundane phenomenon into a dramatic visual spectacle.
