Why Does He Make Work? is a one-minute long silent video depicting Ashery with an object called Angry Drum. Ashery’s body-language is reminiscent of American-Jewish comedies, whilst the headwear is orientalist. This is part of Ashery’s queer explorations of her heritage as a 7th generation Jew born in Jerusalem, or what she describes as a Palestinian Jew.
