Own Your Cervix by Vanessa Dion Fletcher is an interactive installation that uses menstrual blood to physically and metaphorically create a gendered space reflecting on what defines our bodies. In this boundary-pushing show, Dion-Fletcher uses installation and performance to invite us all to think about how our bodies, and the ways we think about our bodies are marked and defined, challenging a medical or anthropological lens.
Textiles, pattern and the athletics of beauty become the backdrop for self-examination in the context of a feminist decolonial discourse.
As part of the exhibition, audiences will be invited to participate in private self-examination sessions, guided by the artist. All persons with or without a cervix are welcome to participate. Materials and instruction will be provided in the privacy of a 30-minute individual appointment.
This exhibition features audio description for all works and will also have multiple tactile pieces. All events associated with this exhibit will be barrier-free and will have ASL interpretation. We request that you help us make this event scent-free. This is a FREE event.
