Art exhibition and artist Q&A
Conceived as a multi-screen video installation and performance MRS ROE explores the social and political history of birth control and abortion, in particular the shift in women’s agency in decision making in different parts of the world. And how this shift sits alongside an erosion of common and specifically female, folk knowledge of abortive native herbs.
MRS ROE is Kerry’s response to the recent Roe v Wade overturn in the USA. She describes the work as “a violent reaction to the historical criminalisation of abortion that explores female dislocation from nature via the lost eco-cultural heritage of abortive native herbs”.
