Butch Cleaning Lady

Pavel Erokhin

2000, 18:13 minutes, colour, English


A short video, based on the artist's personal experience. The film starts with a scene in a second-hand bookstore, in which Vlad is interested in a book by "Tom-of-Japan," Sadao Hasegawa. As the story continues, we are involved in Vlad's world, consisting of his employers and friends. he works part-time in home-and-office maintenance management, in short as a 'butch cleaning lady'. The self-irony of this "muscle-queen" and his humourous eroticism give a fresh look to this story from everyday life.
