7 forms measuring 600 x 60 x 60 cm constructed to be held horizontal to a wall
20--28 November 2010
Gallery of Modern Art, Brisbane

Project 22, titled 7 forms measuring 600 x 60 x 60 cm constructed to be held horizontal to a wall, created a new variation of Santiago Sierra's most poetic and elemental work, unifying sculpture and performance to create a physical portrait of the labor 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. Carrying casket-like forms on their shoulders, they represent what Sierra calls the 'social burial' of labor.
