STUDIO LHOOQ designed a large-format, exquisitely illustrated, 143 page exhibition catalogue of work by contemporary artist Esther Shalev-Gerz.

Describing Labor, mounted at The Wolfsonian-FIU, engages 24 participants from the art world, who describe in a video an artwork they chose among a selection of 41 artworks from the Wolfsonian collection, all depicting workers. Each participant is invited to displace this artwork among the objects of the collections in the storage where it is then photographed. The installation comprises a double HD projection, 24 photographs, a sound work gathering elements of the history of each artwork and his author, 20 glass hammers and 12 original musical composition. The catalogue communicates the artist's multilayer investigation of labor through the enveloping nature of it's binding, sewn as a single signature.
