[Performative encounter and installation]
The Iron Lady is an artisanal business shirt ironing salon for temporary installation in close proximity to the finance district of a city. This artistic operation will seek to generate trade and exchange in a pop-off salon, using conversation and a unique shirt ironing service for the location’s finance workers. Simultaneously it will extract useful data related to how the world of finance ‘works’, and seek fugitive alliances with the art of economy and the economics of art.
The Iron Lady is one tough lady. She is not afraid of the big end of town. She knows what she is worth, and she can iron a mean business shirt in 7 minutes flat.
