Songs for Work brings together moving image, sound, performance, poetry, and installation by three Glasgow-based artists – Aideen Doran, Beth Dynowski and Susannah Stark – to examine the effects of work on subjectivity, community and wider social, political and ethical imaginaries. Being about work, the exhibition is also necessarily about time – the absence or abundance of it – and about the spaces between violence and reverie. 

The exhibition looks at both the individual and collective body at work and the cultural practices, strategies, and meaning-making which undermine, reinvent, and transcend work as world-making. It pays attention to how we shape and are shaped by what we do for a living in all senses – physically, intellectually, emotionally, spiritually, and politically.

Performed by Penny Chivas and Zoe Katsilerou
