An old pink slip is hung, Christ like over the back of a dressing table chair, the slip has been torn and then sewn using human hair.
The work is an examination of female sacrifice in the subordination of male authority, particularly pertaining to the catholic church and the practise of FGM.
The reference to genitalia is exaggerated, drawing attention to the uncomfortable response these issues can have.
The positioning of the chair on an old dirty carpet references the domestic, the slip being hung on the back of the chair suggestive of how these issues are viewed in the media and political sphere.
