In Housework, Margaret Salmon captures the uncanny, beautiful and at times hysterical moments in an alternative domestic cosmos. Highlighting the current state of female domestic roles as well as the status of women in larger society and referencing techniques from screen classics such as Hans Richter’s Ghosts Before Breakfast, Mary Poppins and the American television show Bewitched, Salmon’s film portrays daily household chores being completed by themselves, without human interaction, as supernatural phenomenon.
