"People here like that", 2020

Specification of the piece:

Water-repellent on concrete.


Description:

This project is research-led from a series of conversations with all of the Royal College of Art cleaners. When I started at RCA, I realised the outsourced cleaners were from different South American's countries (Colombia, Ecuador and Bolivia). Since then, I have been looking at the interrelation between identity and labour – Latinos and the cleaning sector.
I wrote an article for the ARC magazine, where I explain in more detail how and why this project took place.
