Linden Projects Space is proud to present Labour Lexica, a curated exhibition featuring the work of local emerging artists Maki Morita, Luce Nguyễn-Hunt and Lachlan Marley.
Labour Lexica is a group exegesis on labour. Drawn together under the themes of work, precarity and language, three artists respond to their perceptions and experiences of work as expressed through bodily, lexical and material conditions. The precariat is a position inhabited by many, with artists and arts workers in the ranks. While they may be subjected to and even complicit in the logics of labour and capital, an awareness and refusal of this position still finds expression.
