Adrian Melis

Born in Havana, Cuba in 1985. Lives and works in Berlin, Germany.

Adrian Melis started a private company in Amsterdam, where he is based, in order to publish (on the Internet and through other media) a call-out for a temporary job welcoming native Spanish speakers to apply for the role by sending in their CVs. The successful individual was required to work for two hours per day, five days a week (from August 6 to September 6 2014), in order to print and destroy by means of a shredder all of the CVs gathered through the call. The final outcome of the mass of shredded CVs would be presented in the exhibition space.
