WORK HOUSE employs a collection of personal management technologies such as calendars, lists, antibacterial gels, therapeutic tape, and live feed surveillance cameras. Many of these tools promise means for coping with contemporary time binds however they often have blind spots, their functionality is erratic and they often conflate access with understanding. Here Sworn repeatedly employs aesthetics of deferral to indicate the a-relational nature that derives when we employ glitching tech in the service of intimate work.

Sworn was awarded the Max Mara Art Prize for Women in 2014 and is the 2015 recipient of the Philip Leverhulme Award. She represented Scotland at The Venice Biennale in 2013 and will have a solo exhibition at the Museum of Himalayas, Shanghai in 2019.

This exhibition was made possible with support from the Leverhulme Trust.
