What it is to be a Women
My work is made in response to everyday sexism and the huge increase of online misogyny. By treating the female body as the home, in need of constant protecting, it focuses on the impact on and the response of our minds and our bodies.
The sculptural jewellery, when seen together with the poem and film, demonstrates the restrictive and painful effect of sexism, as well as representing the anger and the urge to retaliate that builds up as a response.
As a Caribbean woman I find the poem by Malika Booker gives my piece additional resonance, as it talks about the experience of Caribbean women at the hands of men.
