Maintaining (Part II) was part of the 2016 New Blood Performance Art Festival. It consisted of a 9-hour durational performance where I systematically cleaned the inside of the festival venue, and an installation, consisting of a stack of my grandmother's wash cloths (folded), an industrial sink, and an audio component of my mother's voice describing the time in my childhood when she and I cleaned my ballet school in exchange for tuition.
