Video Installation, 37 minutes, 2018
Seething resentment; imposter syndrome; work-life balance; discrimination; office politics; WhatsApp bitching; rotten food in the fridge; coffee grounds in the staff room sink; micro-management; glass ceilings; cubicle farms; open plans and hot desks.
Using breathing and visualisation techniques, artists Matthew de Kersaint Giraudeau and Hamish MacPherson present a guided meditation for the contemporary work place, taking you from exhaustion to exuberance and beyond.
