Portrait of a Silent Worker, part of the Expondo series, is about our “blindness” which blocks out the view of the  cleaners’ daily routine around our cities. The maintenance workers personal identity is lost: they have became invisible. In this portrait, I attempted to recover the visibility of the women that cleans the trash from a public toilet by stressing their movements as a performance art.

Recorded in a public toilet at 29ª Bienal de São Paulo, Brasil.
