Nail (Describing Labor), 2012
Glass
14.5" long

Describing Labor draws on artist Esther Shalev-Gerz’s research into depictions of the worker from the late nineteenth through the mid-twentieth century. Through video, audio, photography and a selection of historic artworks from the Wolfsonian-FIU and the Margulies collections, Describing Labor invites the present to relate to the now rarely seen figure of those whose labor fabricates the physical world via a detour among images from the past.

Esther Shalev-Gerz's "Describing Labor" traveled to Detroit and was on view as part of her solo-exhibition "Space Between Time" at Wasserman Projects in the spring of 2016.
