Precision of Cleanliness explores the cleaning practices and patterns, resulting out of sociological behaviours, with soap and household dust serving as the primary mediums. Approaching the idea of cleanliness from a sociological perspective, the works examine cleanliness as a virtue and as a camouflage of real self. Dust, comprised of dead cells of human body, can be seen as a continuous deconstruction of the body. In an attempt to follow social norms through cleaning ritualistic practices, bodies serve as the projection space of these practices, at the same time mirroring public and private concerns of embracement. The ephemeral and transformational nature of the body serves as an element of historical perspective, as well as a time line revealing the aftermath of social practices and states of mind. Although visually the skin serves as the outline, as the boundary and limit of the human body, the skin is decomposed and the form of the human body is repeatedly redefined, with the body’s identity being removed. The body’s identity is dissolved through the abuse of power, with the society globally facing such actions, giving rise to questions of punishment, acceptance, provocation.
