Human Resource or Zoran and Goran


Human Resource or Zoran and Goran is a performative human sculpture specifically conceived for Northwest by Southeast. Two men selected randomly from workers walking the streets of Skopje in search of work. They were solely employed for the purpose of pumping air simultaneously into and out of an inflatable mattress. This highly strenuous act accompanied by wheezing and squealing sounds produced by air pumped through a valve and sucked out again underpinned the futility of effort. Paid the same wages as they would have probably received for illegal labour in Vienna, their work however achieved no results as the mattress never became entirely inflated nor entirely deflated despite their untiring efforts.
