Bernstein's wacky take on domestic bliss also shows up in a work that gives the exhibit its name. The piece features a mom wearing rollers and a hairnet, her tits buried deep in a stack of dirty dishes. The poor woman peers heavenward as if praying or wondering if her salvation will come in the form of an automatic dishwasher.

In Voila, the woman's entreaties seem to have been answered when a friend shows up for a smoke and a cup of java after the sink has been emptied. The two ladies appear to be asserting their independence for a moment, leisurely puffing away as if they just shared some Valium. But upon a closer look, the scene reveals that the dishes, rather than having been washed, have been dumped in the trash, offering a fresh take on desperate housewives.
