Margaret is a film by artist Tracy Satchwill. The film is on show on a specially adapted 1960s television in the Post War Gallery at the Museum.
Inspired by the 1960s sitting room at North Lincolnshire Museum, Margaret explores a housewife’s role, thoughts and feelings. Through an internal monologue she communicates her thoughts, worries, boredom, repetition and frustrations. Moving from chores that need doing to thoughts on women’s lib.
The film combines location shots of the artist as Margaret with green screen animations and AI avatars. Research was taken from local and national publications, interviews with local women and interviews from Housewife by sociologist Ann Oakley.
