I wonder what she’s trying to wash away and then what she’s getting made up for. The marks on her body must be important too. I don’t know if this performance is about nakedness specifically – she couldn’t have told this story with clothes on.
An intriguing film. I found myself thinking that the washing of clothes could be an indication that she was being servile although that would have worked better if that was the case if there had been a man in the performance who was wearing white and got stripped by her, and his clothes were being washed whilst he just stood there waiting.
I too was intrigued by the marks on her back.
Certainly it’s Art – it has been viewed by us and we are led to think about what it is portraying.
