  • Five Hundred Lemon Trees began with the act of planting through which the artist created a space for both collective participation and personal realisation. A “subscription campaign” followed, allowing donors to become “collaborators.” After two years, each received a bottle of lemon spirits concocted by the artist. As it has developed, the project has incorporated donation, production and consumption into its narrative context, merging creator, producer (farmer-distiller), artwork and viewer into a single entity. Rather than reflecting the reality of society, it has produced an alternative one: a kind of cultural production and value created by the working class.

  • Assemblage of flawlessness investigates the patterns of industrial labour by looking at factory assembly lines as a form of collective work as well as by performing the fictional model of atypical employment that refers to the parallel conditions of art production. Focusing on the history of female labour has been a crucial discourse for the artist, a context to portray a never-fading image of labour in a rapidly changing society. For Assemblage of flawlessness the artist collaborates with multiple workers to produce her work both on and off site.Through this it questions how much the body reveals under the influence of the political economy of the art system.
