Physical Hygiene

San Francisco, CA

Sited in the restroom of the gallery and extending outward into the gallery space, the installation explored and challenged two different pre-conceptions in contemporary urban culture: one is the concept and value of “cleanliness”. The other is social construct surrounding the issue of “privacy” and “publicity”.
