Shame of a Woman

Project Description

Shame of a Woman identifies the sources of shame and visually represents that women are not alone in feeling shamed for aspects of their biological existence. Furthermore, it shows shames troublesome and disruptive nature in a way that in itself is disruptive. Hence our choice of a provocative material: tampons.

These tampons were made by hand as to not waste products that women may not even have access to. With the money we saved by making handmade tampons we were able to donate that amount in products to a women’s shelter in Calgary, AB.

This piece was open to participants for three weeks and has since been published in many articles and several textbooks.
