The artist washes various white garments in a bucket filled with black paint and then tries to wash it off with water and soap. The work focuses on the ritualization of the mundane, repetitive task of laundry work, referencing the image of the archetypal housewife and societal stereotyping in general. The performance is inspired by Diamanda Galas’ music performance “The Law of the Plague” for David Wojnarowicz’s video “Fire in My Belly”, 1987, which was based on the third book of the Pentateuch in the Bible, containing the laws relating to priests and Levites - Leviticus’ Chapter 13: ‘Laws about Leprosy’.
