A stunningly strong and independent personality emerges
from the interview with Viola, who is a Hungarian woman, working as a cleaning lady
in Brussels. She tells a series of interrelated stories
that are hard to believe, yet, all true.
Viola is an exceptional human being, with strict and clear
morals. Day by day she
cleans people’s homes invents order in their chaos, helps
them maintain a high quality of life, and thereby she maintains
her own quality of life... Cleaning, tidying up is a kind of
intervention in those microenvironments, for the comfort and
the happiness of others – and her own.
The artwork presenting Viola is a two-channel video: one is
the audio visualization of the artist’s interview with her, while
the other is a collage of amateur shots of the endless
reconstructions in Brussels in the summertime, mixed with a 3D
simulation of a room hit by turbulence.
