Artists at Work

Rachel Howarth and Zhu Tian (Gallery Attendants)

Performance Documentation

Our performance plays with the border between art/work. We question the distinction between doing your job and performing it. Normally, at the gallery we are Working Artists, this time we are Artists at Work. The artwork invites the possibility of an interesting power switch between the public and the gallery attendants: from watching to being watched, and from being the subject to the object. The overarching theme is ‘time’, and subsequently our work is dedicated to every gallery attendant who gives part of their life to protect Art.
