Branded, sequined suitcases, with their notions of physical and social mobility, are static before the visitor as MINDONTHEMONEY unfolds a soundscape composed of the calls of the hawkers who peddle ‘fake’ goods from suitcases because of their need to evade the authorities quickly when necessary. It is up to the listener to decide whether those who cannot, or will not part with the money for the authentic should be the objects of derision or praise, but more profoundly the installation illustrates the irony of the way in which the brand-dream, and the addiction to the label, unite humanity from sweatshop to boutique.
