Recording of live performance narrating the rise of capital in the medium of asparagus. Ta rigid choreography inspired by Oskar Schlemmer’s Triadic Ballet and based on Karl Marx’s Capital dictated the movements of six performers in asparagus costumes. Bringing together the organic and the geometric, the ballet investigated the transition from the Fordist assembly line to immaterial labour through a reanimation of modernist abstraction. Produced in collaboration with Montreal based band Les Georges Leningrad and commissioned by The Showroom Gallery, London.
Booklet accompanying homonymous project which included two exhibitions,a workshop, a publication and a website. Eduardo Padilha and Michael Schwab work in collaboration using the geometric concept of the circle as a tool to create works related to lived experience and urban environment. Small size booklet in A4 folder.
