Aloka: Ready For Export


In Ready for Export, Trevor stages an export clearance area as an inquiry into migratory labour practices among young people. Through paintings of children’s faces within the installation, he evokes a humanity that is often invisible in the transactions of the labour market. Using a palette of copper and gold, Aloka places personified objects and precious metals on pedestals to connect labour as a commodity to how young people view their own value, and what their value is worth to their own country.
