“Terms of Inclusion, Terms of Exclusion” (sculpture at Crossbones Graveyard), 2018
At Crossbones Graveyard, a former sex workers’ burial ground in Southwark, I recently exhibited “Terms of Inclusion, Terms of Exclusion”. The work asked viewers to climb concrete steps up to both sides of a door with embedded text of current and possible future legislation affecting sex work. Accompanied by keyword search results from iStockphoto.com, identified on one side and renamed on the other, the work examined societal misconceptions and stereotypes that inform the production of this legislation.
This work was part of “Outside”, an exhibition at Crossbones Graveyard initiated and co-curated by Joseph Steele, Aubree Penney, and me.
