Garment Work (2010) is a project by Anne Elizabeth Moore conducted in residence at the Leipziger Baumwollspinnerei, formerly one of the largest and longest-running textile mills in the world. Garment Work incorporates video, an installation of the constituent elements of a single pair of German-manufactured jeans, and a Tagebuch, kept in German, that references the Baumwollspinnerei's Brigadebucher, regular diaries of sociopolitical life at the textile mill under the GDR. The Garment Work video distills 34 hours and 36 minutes of work into a ten-hour video of Moore's durational performance, which involved taking apart a pair of jeans with her bare hands under the contemporary conditions of the former textile mill over the course of three weeks. Garment Work is a meditation on capitalism, integrity, loss, and perseverance.
Garment Work PREVIEW is a ten-minute video documentation of Moore's durational performance.
