Jessica Vaughn - December 2011

Working

In this installation, artist Jessica Vaughn presents a common, disposable working-class object for closer inspection and care.  500 mop heads create a backdrop for a live performance on Saturday, December 3 from 9am to 5pm, the length of one standard working day.  Contracted laborers comb through the mop strands, collecting fibers and generally cleaning this window space, both inside and out.

With this art installation and performance, Vaughn asks us to think about the value of work, the art of work, and issues of class, labor, and the exchange of goods.
