24 Sculptures in 24 Hours by Teresa Albor

WERK were delighted to welcome artist Teresa Albor to the LPAP | SPACE on 3rd October 2014 as she set out to create 24 sculptures in 24 hours. 

The project raised questions about cultural production and labour, exposing both the similarities and the disconnects between the making of art versus the making of other goods. It also played with the concept of the “white cube” gallery scenario where art is a precious commodity consumed by the elite. In this case,  in a project space on the site of a historical factory, the work was free and was produced openly, informed by factory processes such as deadlines and mass production. Cultural production is often depicted as an assembly-line process. This is “task-oriented” performance art about labour and the methods and systems of mass-production.
