Polish Artist at Your Workplace for £5,52 per hour, 2008

















Polish Artist for £5,52 per hour, Liverpool, England
residency at The Institute for the Art and Practice of Dissent at Home

During a 3 day long residency I spent the time looking for a job as an artist in both non-art and art venues. I offered to work for the minimum hourly rate of £5,52 per hour initially just for one week. I ecided that whatever I would create during this time would belong to the employer. I would keep only the rights to the documentation of the whole process.

Previous employers said:

“I couldn't believe an artist can be so USEFUL!”

“It was great to have somebody so creative around for so little pay!”

“The artist helped us channel negative behaviours and attitudes”

“Having the artist around was a better investment than a new air conditioning!”
