‘I lay them all out in nice sentences, all my clean, white bones.’
This durational performance considers acts of political whitewashing. It questions that which is negated by official narratives. It takes, as a point of departure, the omission of 796 pages of testimonies by women who were detained in Ireland’s Magdalen Laundries from the 2013 McAleese Report.
Materials used: laundry powder, milk, lamb feeding teats, knitting needles, bones (coloured green, white and orange) and a bone-grinder.
