Shut Her upCover her UpCut Her up

2012 / Paper

A series of silkscreen prints which reflect the embarrassing crisis in Jerusalem in 2011-2012, in which women were forced to sit in the back of buses, walk on opposite sidewalks, silenced from giving eulogies in certain cemeteries, and not allowed to deliver lectures at conferences where ultra-orthodox men were in attendance.

These also refer to the obsession with how much of her collarbone or ankle a woman shows and the last one refers to the situation (which has now been rectified) whereby women were removed from the organ donation posters.

For forty years these posters featured a man and a woman and suddenly the woman was gone. This action implied that a woman’s organs were wanted, just not the vessel that holds them.
