About the Work:
The video piece originated and was edited from a two-day performance at ARoS Public Atelier in Denmark. Abang-guard reflected on avant-garde artistic strategies by infusing personal history and art practice to convey with theoretical humor the complexity and nuances in the relationship between institutional structures and the role of labor. The piece explored the inner-life of guards as Abang-guard worked out, sang mash-up karaoke, and declared their philosophical thoughts while walking through galleries.
