This is a project based on the language used by society to treat, and talk about female victims of rape and sexual assault. Historically embroidery has been considered feminine, and it has not been taken seriously because it’s a homely craft. This allows for another contrasting layer between the realities of this crude subject with the subtlety of the medium.
The fabric of our society is built on language, and in this patriarchal society, language has evolved in such a way to make horrible events be blamed on the victims, instead of their predators. Using a minimal palette and underwear garments, the artists makes us confront the subject of rape, and assault in a interactive installation.
