I am fascinated by the female body and its function, as object .It is container, depository and passage. It is Carcass; it bleeds, it smells without a day’s wash; it is fragile, moist, and susceptible to all kinds of infections. I am overwhelmed by images, thoughts, words and materials that reference these ideas.
