—DELIVER— 2017



“DELIVER”

J’ai suivi les livreurs à domicile, je les ai photographié avec un Smartphone. Nous avions les mêmes outils de travail – à savoir un vélo et un téléphone - mais nous en faisions une utilisation différente. Leurs gestes et leur uniforme témoignent à leur manière d’une forme de taylorisme contemporain. La répétition est accompagnée par les flux mouvementés des nouvelles technologies, où la précarité de l’emploi prend des faux airs de liberté.

“DELIVER”
Online Exhibition Europeana

"Still a working title ?" Selected by Belgian curator Ive Stevenheydens, the artworks portray Europeans in real-life situations and show some of the principles of the European Pillar of Social Rights as they are lived by Europeans every day.

Laura Ben Hayoun’s work reflects the changes of the employment landscape over the years. In Deliver, her unique images highlight the precariousness of employment which often falsely takes the appearance of freedom.

In this series Ben Hayoun used her smartphone to picture ‘riders’ on their nightly journeys. The gestures and uniforms of the riders, in their own unique way, are an example of contemporary Taylorism, a situation where every single minute counts. At the same time, these repeated journeys are accompanied by the bustling flows of new technologies.
