Eva & Franco Mattes Works Exhibitions About

 

 

BEFNOED (2014-)

For BEFNOED – an acronym for By Everyone, For No One, Every Day – we provide instructions for anonymous workers to film themselves performing various acts. Because they are hired through crowdsourcing services, we do not know who or where they are, or even their motivations. The videos are shown in galleries and dispersed on obscure, peripheral or forgotten social networks around the world.

In the gallery, the placement of the monitors in the space is such that, in order to watch the work, viewers are forced into a series of physically awkward and bizarre positions.
