Abstract

Handwriting on the Wall / What Will Befall Her?
Grievously, millions of females born each year will experience physical and
psychological violence during their lifetimes, for no other reason than their gender. This installation invites the public to write personal accounts of abuse on the wall, which will be surrounded by large-scale drawings that beckon viewers to face injustices.
