Part 1 was "Dirt is Beautiful,"a letter to my two children. This second part is a letter to my sisters.
Love Letters is a suite of performative video letters addressed to people close to the artist, reflecting on the desire for home, the politics of homemaking and housecleaning, and the ecology of the home.
The second letter, called Home Work, explores the gender politics of housework. In the performance, handfuls of dried lavendar are gently tossed over the audience. One performer dressed in coveralls goes about cleaning petals off of the audience with rolled up packing tape, then sweeps up the rest. The other performer, Ju-Pong, sits in a rocker to rest from all the spitting and cleaning of the previous piece, and crochets while watching/reading the letter with the audience.
