Hands Study (non-work gestures) (2015)
Archival Pigment Print - 90 x 120 cm

Cleaning Agent - Employé Polyvalent (Kebab)

 


This series was conceived from the idea of decontextualizing the relation hand/tool. It is a search of establishing a different relationship between the worker and his job. 

In the moment that the photo is being taken a simple gesture, inspired by the mannerist poses of classical painting, is created distorting the intention of the work action. The worker adopts a light and delicate attitude through this gesture that seeks to reduce as much as possible the strength and the energy of the hand that is engaged daily in the execution of the work activity.
