Catalogue title: 'La Biennale di Venezia: 56th International Art Exhibition All the World's Futures'. Emily Floyd's project for 'All the World's Futures' is an immersive installation set within a walled garden in the Arsenale's Giardino Delle Vergini. Incorporating a {"}Fair Use{"} field library dedicated to critical perspectives on work and generated through the context of the Biennale, 'Labour Garden' forms a container for ideas, historical perspectives and new writing on the subject of labour. 'Labour Garden' “… takes shape at the intersections where sculpture meets public space and design collides with social crisis. It embraces elements of expanded sculpture and a range of print media and typographic artefacts, including the poster and the manifesto. Floyd renegotiates the possibility of public address, critically engaging an increasingly diverse and unpredictable viewership in debate. The topics of that exchange range from such urgencies as labour conditions in a world where work has become increasingly immaterialized, the traumas of migration at a time when exile is the norm, and the imperative of self-organization as unprecedented and improvised forms of community emerge across the globe. Indeed, Floyd’s work gestures toward new forms of sociality, for which the artwork can serve both as provocation and as venue.“ (Ranjit Hoskote - All the World's Futures Project Catalogue)",
