We all work and this project is about how that work, paid or unpaid, is perceived, renumerated and legitimised. The world of work is changing rapidly and the jobs we do affect our identities, social class and relationships. This is a visual arts project which aims to question why much of the most necessary and important work is carried out illegally, for less than a living wage and often invisibly. Through it we aim to question the distinctions we make between work and all those other things we do which are not normally classified as work.

This is a call out for collaborators to place the figures in new places. Anyone is free to copy these or make their own life size working female figures and place them in public spaces and to use the @laborolove tag. However, anyone who would like a figure: a cleaner, a sex worker or a child carer, please send a message via this site, or twitter @laborolove or laborolove@hotmail.com and we will mail a pack like those on this page. The pack includes everything you need except glue (white glue/pva) for safety reasons. In exchange we ask for at least 3 photos of the figure in its site, from close up, mid distance and as far away as possible. Please send the images to laborolove@hotmail.com or tweet @laborolove and include the date if it is not sent the same day you pasted. Chose sites carefully, get permission if possible, and always be safe as we cannot accept responsibility for accidents or legal action if you are trespassing or if you break local laws. We welcome more permanent siting if anyone gets agreement. Thanks for helping make more work visible.

  • Genius Loci is the title of this intervention for Muri
    5 days ago by i_support_street_art 'Genius Loci' is the title of this intervention for Muri a perdere curated by  @artepubblicap  an art project born in Ascoli Piceno intended for the areas affected by the earthquake in the Italian region of Marche. As the artist explains “When I was told the story of this wall It seemed as if a ghost was working to keep safe this part of the construction that survived the earthquake. I imagined that the structure was held up by the hands of an invisible and positive force that was preserving and taking care of it, as of a very precious thing.”
  • Today June the 17th a year ago started the fire
    5 days ago by i_support_street_art Today, June the 17th, a year ago started the fire of Pedrógão Grande, the most serious in the history of Portugal,(64 deaths and 134 injuries). In remembrance to this sad event and homage to the work of firefighters, the Wool Urban Art Festival of Covilhã's organization proposed to  @rocblackblock  to make an intervention on the fire station building of the city, with the will of the festival to show the gratitude and respect from the whole society to the Fire brigade. His next show will be at the N2 Gallery in Barcelona with his colleagues and friends Mohamed L'Ghacham i
  • alicepasquini just returned from the island of Santa Maria in
    2 days ago by i_support_street_art  @alicepasquini  just returned from the island of Santa Maria in the Azores for Festival Sete Sois Sete Luas. Using spraypaint meant for cars—the only kind available—she painted two pieces close to the ocean. Inspired by the form and color of the walls, she painted two women—or maybe the same woman—one in front of the other. They gaze out toward the horizon and look at the ocean from this island. “Today we’re living in difficult times in where many cross the water toward new lands in search of a better life, not always arriving in the end."  #instagraffiti   #isupportstreetart   #thestreetisourgallery   #alicepasquini
