Exercises in Napery focuses on napkin folding as a disciplined and repetitive task. Divided into three parts, the video begins with a fast-paced instructional video, followed by a task-based performance, and concludes with a stop-motion animation. Through humour and rigour, theatricality and militarism, absurdity and irony, the video examines the economy of labour practices associated with domesticity and the service industry.
