REVERIE, Liberation from Work

REVERIE, Liberation from Work is a limited-edition vinyl LP produced for the exhibition ‘Danilo Correale: At Work’s End’. The last episode of ongoing research into the effects of capitalism on human subjectivity conducted by the artist. The record is a two-part audio work, created in collaboration with a hypnotherapist, which draws the participants into an imaginative future without work. For the design of the cover, we adapted a picture of an office left empty after the 2008 credit crash, applying a fluidifying effect to suggest the hypnotic sensations prompted by the artist’s performance. We intentionally used a picture with a central perspective and darkened the area around the vanishing point to emphasize escape from the work-place and the riddle of a life beyond work.
