A Breach of Margins
I am interested in the way in which labour and play affect social, cultural and psychological development. Though different, they are related sources of experiences, both for individuals and groups. From this perspective, the workplace and the playground constitute places for the construction of self-identity. However, when an activity becomes institutionalised, like in the case of labour, a structure of rules is defined. Consequently, the number of possible relationships between the subjects and objects involved decreases, and this function is somehow undermined, as individuals become repositories and drivers of the interests of powerful socio-economic agents. I attempt to articulate those concerns by staging images where familiar actions and conventional uses of objects and spaces are subverted.
