Washing Hands with Soap in the Shape of my Mother’s Hands
Performance
Using soap casted in the shape of her mother’s hands, Marika Vandekraats will wash the hands of participants, sharing a brief experience of familial care. Over time, the soap will break down and dissolve the fingerprints, removing the identity, and leaving behind a faint scent of clean hands.
