Meaning Cleaning

Meaning Cleaning is a collaborative performance initiated by Hayley Severns and Angela Rose Voulgarelis. Since 2007, the artists have cleaned sidewalks, subway stations, building entryways and city streets, as a way to probe the boundary between the public and the private. The artists hope to draw the viewer's attention away from traditional expectations of "women's work" and towards an examination of "acceptable" behavior and "cleanliness". Meaning Cleaning aims to transform cultural assumptions, gender roles and public place.
