In order to support herself, she pursuses freelancing cleaning jobs in town. One of her customers is a well known gallery owner and art collector. Weronika once a week cleans one of his lofts full of art pieces. The monochrome apartment slowly and patentily fills and disappears under Weronika's strong presence and the white coverage of washed sheets she hangs on every item to dry.
"I came here to clean those Germans" she says  and shakes the dirt off the just-washed sheet.
