Benera and Estefan
I work, therefore I'm not, 2012 - ongoing
installation (A3 prints, wall paint),
variable dimensions

Since 2012, this series of drawings has been capturing the conditions in which the artists oftentimes have to support their artistic practice through an additional day job. On days when they are unable to dedicate their time to art making but have to earn their living as graphic designers, Benera and Estefan capture the movement of the cursor on their screen. Thus the abstract drawings depict the amount of labour hours spent in front of a computer when not making art. On days when they can fully dedicate their time to art making, the sheets remain blank. Paradoxically, as they become more and more acknowledged as artists, more and more sheets stay blank, until the drawings slowly vanish.
