Intl. Women’s Day Screening: Helen Chadwick’s ‘Domestic Sanitation’

Helen Chadwick

In recognition of International Women’s Day, Richard Saltoun will be screening Helen Chadwick’s Domestic Sanitation, a performance which took place in Brighton in 1976.

In The Latex Glamour Rodeo, five women in grotesque rubber costumes act out bizarre beauty rituals in a kind of beauty salon. The performance is without sound, but a radio show can be heard advertising beauty products in the background.

In Bargain Bed Bonanza, four figures – each half woman, half bed – appear. We see a shop window filmed from the street, with the costumes on display and interested passers-by.
