In this work, four participants relate a narrative to the camera telling of a time where they either consented or dissented in a particular context. Each then re-tells the narrative of another, reversing the terms of consent and dissent. This reversal can range from replacing the terms used in the original narrative (for example, replacing "yes" with "no") to inventing new details of the narrative. The video is played on a continuous loop without marking which of the narratives is “original” or to whom they belong.
In Labor, four people who have worked with Shvarts relate a narrative to the camera telling of a time where they either consented or dissented in the context of work. Participants: Luming Hao, Morgan Falconer, Ellen Tepfer, Jessica Rankin.
