Eugenia Lim, ON DEMAND 2019, video still, courtesy of the artist.

Made in collaboration with workers from the gig economy, ON DEMAND is a pedal-powered video work that considers work, labour, solidarity and movement (political and physical) in the neoliberal present. Living and working in the 21st-century brings precarity, competition and mobility – both for independent artists and ‘independent contractors’ of the gig economy. Self-exploitation, low wages and zero-hour contracts are shared terrain for many workers across both the cultural and service sectors.


This is a pedal-powered work. You are invited to sit on a bicycle to cycle and work up a sweat to activate the work.


Eugenia Lim is an Australian artist who works across video, performance and installation. Interested in how nationalism and stereotypes are formed, Lim invents personas to explore the tensions of an individual within society – the alienation and belonging in a globalised world. Lim has exhibited, performed or screened at Tate Modern, EXiS (Seoul), ACCA, ACMI, Next Wave, FACT Liverpool, 24HR Art (Darwin), Substation (Singapore), Experimenta, Sydney Contemporary, Museum of Contemporary Art (Sydney), Melbourne Festival, Dark MOFO, Bus Projects and MPavilion. ON DEMAND is part of Lim’s ongoing enquiry into cultural production, social reproduction and living and working in the digital age.
