A toolkit customized for a fictional role I assigned on to myself.

 

Perfect Housewife includes series of installations with a performance. In the toolkit I designed four machines for this imaginary character, it accompanied by a user manual which is a performance to explains their ‘perfect usage’. The phenomenon I am examining here is the entrenched ideas about woman’s household labor.
