Dust

Brazil has the biggest population of domestic workers in the world. 7 million, mostly poor afro descendent women operate in invisible spaces of Brazilian households. The social invisibility of domestic workers is an issue particularly evident in Brazil, where I grew up, but which is also present at different levels of intensity around the globe. Dust suggests an alternative view on the subject as it offers the perspective of a child growing up under the care of Sandra, unaware of her social invisibility and transfixed by every detail of her. Dust places itself within the social context of Brazilian lower-class professionals and aims to deconstruct the normalised behaviour regarding their existence.
