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 and anthropological lens.Textiles, pattern and the athletics of beauty become the backdrop for self-examination in the context of a feminist decolonial discourse.
