Transfer of Work

Tagged: economy
Year: 2013

Transfer of Work models the process of labour and the production of value. The documents are SUPERFLEX work logs - invoices and bills that represent value but are in fact completely worthless in their original format. The gilding of the invoices is a reference to gold as the single solid source in time of crisis, a momentary stop block for financial collapse. By gilding and framing the documents, it restarts a machine of artistic production influenced and driven by commodity fetishism resulting in the new original artwork. The documents are e.g. bills paid to lawyers who defended SUPERFLEX in a dispute with La Chemise Lacoste S.A.


Transfer of Work is simultaniously a simple transfer of work and a production of a new art work - and thereby a potential infinite value escalating machine.
