Performing Spatial Labour correlates two seemingly separate conditions of invisibility currently at the forefront of architectural discourse. One is invisibility perpetuated through spaces of internment or detention. The other is hidden architectural labour shouldered by office interns and on-site construction workers. Through a practice-based investigation I ask how installations and performances employing architecture's instruments—drawings, models and texts—can make sensible, or knowable through the senses, the camp as a recurrent condition. Through this inquiry, practices of erasing, obfuscating and forensic un/re-making have emerged, contributing to a critical praxis that I call spatial labour.
