Object measuring 600 x 57 x 52 cm Constructed to be Held Horizontally to a Wall, 2001

Galerie Peter Kilchmann, Zürch, Switzerland

A sculpture made of materials like wood and asphalt was lifted horizontally. One end rested on a wooden socket on the wall of the gallery and the other end was supported by four workers –two workers at a time. They were paid 20 Swiss francs per hour, about $12, during the opening of the show. Political exiles from different countries were employed for this work, having been contacted directly through the local authorities. The laws in this country do not allow exiles to work but the authorities are fairly permissive in this matter. The authorities are given permission to pick possible jobs for political exiles.
