 'Project 22, 7 forms measuring 600 x 60 x 60 cm constructed to be held horizontal to a wall' by Santiago Sierra

The work creates a new variation of Santiago Sierra’s most poetic and elemental work, unifying sculpture and performance to create a physical portrait of the labour economy. Hired for the minimum wage, the employees hold monolithic structures on their shoulders for the duration of a working day. They recall the caryatid or atlas figures whose sculpted forms stand as pillars to support the weight of classical architecture.
