Sex arbeit?

Created for the exhibition “Mit Schweiß und Blut – Arbeit ≠ Arbeit?“ in PantoART gallery, Wien.

Gold dust representing the money that drives sex work.

One can imagine the fatigue that an abandoned hand and a worn-out cigarette reveal to us.  The beauty of a withered hand tells stories of exploitation and modern forms of slavery.

Whose hand is this? Whose legs are half covered? Where are we, in what night?

One has the feeling of wanting to comfort this hand, perhaps to hold it between one’s own.
