The aesthetics of labour
Kay Abude

19 November -
18 December 2021

Gertrude Glasshouse

44 Glasshouse Rd, Collingwood VIC 3066

Opening: Thursday 18 November 2021, 6-8pm

The aesthetics of labour is a series of new sculptural and performative works that extend Abude's long-standing interests in themes of labour, production and value. 

    Kay Abude is a multi-disciplinary artist working in sculpture, large-scale installation, performance, photography and silk-screen printing. Abude is fascinated with the banality of work and the nature of labour, with its economic, repetitive and somatic properties, and how work connects and separates us, taking so much of our time that it comes to define our lives.
