Housework is never-ending and usually physically and psychologically exhausting. While often unappreciated and considered women’s work, in fact, it requires strength, power and endurance.


To create Sponge, I slowly turn my body into a cleaning sponge to clean the dish. The repetitive action and the squeezing of my face created a moving meditation through which I transformed entirely into a cleaning sponge. At times, my face was forced to submerge and soak in the cleaning soap before coming back up to be pushed against the dish continuously and sometimes violently.
