Comments on the conditions of formation of “woman” (2)

Installation, variable dimensions
Video, colour-catchers
2011

Short description:

The project draws a link between the past and the present of the feminine identity and examines the role of women as domestic workers. The installation was designed with “colour-catchers”, a product recently introduced in the market, which provides the ability to prevent the colours from running off while washing. As a result, the washing procedure allows the colour-catcher to obtain a specific dye. In every case, the result is both unpredictable and unique.

After multiple washes and years of collection, a huge colourful canvas was created by these colour-catchers. The frame was installed on a window in order to have the light filtered through the patchwork of the colour-catchers. Furthermore, a video was projected on the canvas, presenting an old woman washing clothes in a traditional washtub.
