Keeping House reconfigures the viewers’ relationship to the human element of institutional cleanliness. It is an inquiry into tactile beauty and societal ugliness in the life of a Queer femme laboring as a maid. The work distills a microcosm of dehumanization amongst the many regularly employed to reinforce dominant power structures.  Veronica Ceci’s art makes undervalued labor conspicuous through intense materiality, repetition, iconography and lived performance.
