"To give the shirt off one's back", is a saying that describes giving something that is asked for regardless of the sacrifice.

Taking on the position of the caretaker, the artist laboriously scrubs the cement with her own shirt. Using only water as a cleaning agent, the work she does goes unnoticed and unrecognizable. This is dedicated to the artist's parents and the sacrifices they made immigrating to Canada from the Philippines.
