How Capital Moves

You are invited to "The opening reception/Preview of "How Capital Moves" which will take place at Istabraq Hall on Thursday 24 March 2011 at 6pm.This is a new body of work by artist duo Kennedy Browne, on view 25 March–6 May 2011.

The work is partly a response to a computer factory relocating to Łódź, Ploland from Limerick, Ireland. Kennedy. Focusing on one particular online forum maintained by former and current employees of The Company, Kennedy Browne have used this as a delimited resource for a case study. They have crafted narratives on redundancy and precarity in order to examine the insecure nature of employment within early 21st century capitalism.

This raw material includes a myriad of opinions, rumours, speculations and accounts of actual events, and begins to elaborate a geography of incorporated labour evident between the years 2002–2009

Through the development of a script with a loose narrative arc six distinct monologues have been constructed. The monologue performances are delivered by six different avatars, played by a single actor. Each avatar addresses a particular experience and attitude towards working within The Company.More
