Ich Piersi, Moje Piersi (Their Breasts, My Breasts)
CW: sexual violence - Ich Piersi, Moje Piersi (Their Breasts, My Breasts) explores the sexual trauma inflicted upon women during the Holocaust. My work, usually brightly coloured, participatory and bouncing, here takes a form in a silent, lamenting and weeping disposition. It investigates my continuous torment into what it means to be a Jewish Australian Polish Female Artist, and how my Jewish female body mourns the experiences of my ancestors.
