Here is the new interesting project by Italian artist Bifido in Gambettola, a small village in the north of Italy, for Bosco Urban Project. He was asked to work on the topic of labour and this is what he delivered.
Title: Hell is round the corner
This wall belongs to an old abandoned tobacco factory. For years, people of all sexes and ages have worked inside it, many hours a day. As is the case in thousands of other places, a life at work, a life without life. Life in your free time, spent being entertained in some refreshing recreational activity.
”I often think of the concept of free time. I hate free time. It is the charity of a society that wants us to be slaves. Full with a sweat that exhausts us, without giving joy. Making an artwork on the concept of work for me meant expressing all my dissent against this absurd idea that work (as a mere sustenance) gives meaning to our life. Making art is my job and I love it. Between one brushstroke and the next, I strongly wanted to avoid the rhetoric of…~ To be happy you have to do what you love. So what to say? Look at the work and think what would you like.” Bifido
