You and I in a Bed of Salt
Pigment Print on Wallpaper, Pigment print 3x 50×50 & 6x 15×15, Vinyl
The form obscures the landscape, leaving it blurry
taking up the space of all that was once there
It’s the worm catching its own tail
It’s the way that I feel skinless,
I am waiting for it to start over
Contrary to the socially constructed image of the rapist as a stranger, in the majority of sexual assaults, the victim already knew the perpetrator in one way or another.
You and I in a Bed of Salt is a dissection of the complex experiences and emotions survivors of sexual violence are left with. Violence, pain, but also ambivalence is given form. Cutting, burning, gluing, and sowing into the negatives, each one of them are displayed as a place of conflict.
