24 Hours at the Sweatshop

Common Ground: Hutt Public Art Festival​ presents a performance project by Jay Jay Hutchinson​ ’24 Hours at the Sweatshop’ intended to provoke discussion about the everyday products that fill our lives; how they are produced, consumed and disposed of.

The artist will create a simulated sweatshop in an About Space empty shop space in the CBD of lower Hutt (211 High Street). He will remain in the space for 24 hours with only six ten-minute tea breaks, replicating sweatshop conditions experienced by workers overseas. The artist will cut fabric from a roll, sew together the garment, print an image on it before placing the garment on a rack. The audience will then be invited to take the product, as long as they do not enter into a system of exchange. ie. they are not allowed to give the artist anything in return.
