Celebrate Laziness

Mixed media, 2017, 54"w x 9.5"h x 4.25"d

Celebrate Laziness grapples with our capacity to inhabit space and time unproductively, despite the fact that we are embedded in a capitalist social form that is predicated on productivity. It questions the extent to which we can replace the anxiety-inducing desire for productivity with a different, more positive structure of feeling that lets us enjoy acts of laziness or lethargy. When leisure time is capitalized, can we be congratulated and awarded for our laziness? Does lethargy escape productivity or allow us to be ambivalent toward it?
