ABOUT THE PROJECT
ATTIC explores the rape of female culture. The sexual assault of young women and their often-downward spiral into destruction and suicide threads throughout the work. Wildly off-balance movement contrasted with small, constricted physical tasks situate themselves in a stark, disheveled environment. Images of the mundane and the fantastic featuring white cakes, dozens of white pencils, large projections of albino moose, rabbits, whales, Arctic fox. Through this juxtaposition, ATTIC explores sexual assault, suicide and beatific visions of the Afterlife in which the victim imagines both safety and relief.
