An outdoor performance piece by Claudia Borgna following the theme of domestic labor she also explores in Domestic Apocalypse. In this piece, the performer wears a domestic uniform and dusts and cleans trees and plants in a public outdoor area. She engages passersby in cleaning as appropriate.
Artist’s statement: Domestic economies are determined by global capitalist economy. Could the domestic economy affect our social public economy instead? The economy of cleaning might be the solution to clean up an economy of greed that is responsible for the destruction of the planet. Renewable repetitions subtly change within the gestures of care, transforming and maintaining the sustainability of love. The pedagogy of maintenance is my daily practice: my resistance to capitalism.
