Labour Exchange: Sarah Taylor and Magali Nougarède
“Labour Exchange” is an exhibition of works by painter Sarah Taylor and photography practitioner Magali Nougarède.
Inherent to the work of both artists is the use of the domestic object as source material, especially soft furnishings re-appropriated from previous generations: fabrics, clothing, wallpaper, cloths, tea towels. These items are at the centre of the artists’ visual consciousness, not only as objects of aesthetic fascination, but also as objects of historical and political significance. Both artists see the domestic object as an opportunity to interrogate power relations, past and present, in terms of gender, class and political ideology, to address political inequities and reclaim histories.
