In this piece Aleks Wojtulewicz is playing around with the stereotypes of the 1950’s housewife and the 1950’s working male in a modern time. It is a durational performance where the performer will try to rebuild a utility room and wash and dry his clothes. He will then break it down and rebuild somewhere else. It is a durational performance that is part of the bigger exploration into the forms that people take throughout their lives.

Aleks Wojtulewicz is a performance artist from the West Midlands. He studied performance studies at Aberystwyth University. He uses the physicality of his own body in space for his performances. He also works with the notions of understanding what makes a man a man, and what makes a woman a woman. Cross combining his masculinity with his feminine side helps him better portray what makes us who we are and how we have become the way we are. All of his research and work is being catalogued for a project with German based artist Lucia Reiner.
