Labor Drawing

Marta Leite

Curator: Jean-François Chougnet | Session: Open Call – Screening of competition finalists

In the video Labor Drawing, a character draws with both hands onto the glass surface of a window pane, facing the spectator. She draws until the drawing lines cover her face completely. Towards the end she cleans the glass, goes out of the camera frame, comes back and starts drawing again. The action repeats itself in an endless loop. What is addressed here is the absurdity of labor and how this absurdity imposes itself on the ones who perform it.

MiniDV, black and white, no sound.
