Untitled (Mutual Cleanse),    2011-present    Carved and painted soap, washed       In  Untitled (Mutual Cleanse) , I carve and paint portraits into my grandmother’s collection of 120 bars of soap that she ‘ skladovala’  (which means stored but more so, stacked with care) in her one bedroom apartment in Czechoslovakia during Communism. I bring them back to a functional state, placing them in public restrooms throughout US and Europe. Much like Janine Antoni in Lick/Lather where she   slowly erased her outer appearance exploring the love-hate relationship we have with our physical appearance, I want to explore the love-hate relationships within the family/country and demonstrate one’s effect on another.
