A LEXICON OF LABOUR MOVEMENTS by Clare Thornton and Paul Hurley

5.00

published by Knowle West Media Center

A5, 12 loose pages in cardboard folder, digitally printed on peach sugar paper, 2015.

Inspired directly by the local tradespeople encountered, specifically by the physical actions of their work; the tasks, the tools, the integrated choreography of their labours.

How to gather and record those processes?

How to shape this new work and repeat it again and again?

Through conversation, sketches, video and photography at workplaces across St Phillips and Knowle West A Lexicon of Labour Movements began to develop.

A distilled compilation of these records it is both document of the process and score to its future presentation. The intention is that it will grow and expand to include labour movements from new workplaces.

The design and layout of this document is intended to operate as a manual for the reader towards remaking and reconstructing A Lexicon of Labour Movements.

The original performance and exhibition of A Lexicon of Labour Movements was originally co-commissioned by Knowle West Media Centre and The Showroom Projects, as part of the In The City series at The Parlour Showroom, Bristol, 2013
