November 25 - December 19 2015
Online exhibition @ Link Cabinet
Work less, work all. We are the 99% on Fiverr.com <http://fiverr.com/> combines
body art with a performative approach and a strong political and conceptual
statement. During the time of the exhibition the artist will create a gig
on Fiverr.com <http://fiverr.com/> - a website where people offer their
professional services at a very low rate – offering the possibility to buy
one of his artworks.
The artworks will be created by buying and reselling the gigs of Fiverr
workforce, asking each worker to use his/her body to show, sing, dance or
declaim a message chosen by the artist. The whole operation can be
described as a commissioned body art performance, in which the performative
procedure followed by the artist is combined with the actions performed by
the workers on or with their own bodies.
If on the one hand Segni exploits workers' body and creativity to produce
his artworks, on the other hand he asks them to convey messages that borrow
language and mottos from the labour rights movements, thus stressing on the
difficult and peculiar labour conditions in the digital era.
