Women’s bodies have always been subjected to unsettling boundaries. Overturning Roe v Wade is an example violating the female body. I used the female pelvis as subject and object in my work examining the inside and outside space regarding unresolved conflicts, boundaries, and resilience. The life size pelvis is a symbol of support and protection. The tear resistant barricade tape divides space denying public access.
