Dirty Laundry

This project outlines my own experience with emotional and sexual abuse, taking phrases said to me by individuals who were abusive in some fashion, and putting them onto underwear. I had a goal of taking sexual abuse out of the 'taboo' closet, airing this heavy topic, and exhibiting it in an effort to create conversation.

These pairs of women's panties were embroidered and silk screened by myself with phrases said to me by people who were abusive and who, in saying these things, damaged my self worth. This project was undertaken over the course of a week, as my cumulative body of work at the end of my Fibre Arts Specialization in Haliburton.
