I created this sculpture as a commentary about the aftermath of the #MeToo movement earlier this year – the feeling of losing one’s identity and privacy after partaking in a mass confessional that doesn’t lead to many actual resolutions for the individuals involved. It’s cathartic to talk about the hidden, but it’s also a very vulnerable place, and without subsequent healing for the victims, or repercussions for the perpetrators, where does that leave us?

The original clay sculpture was modeled after a live woman who was gracious enough to pose, and I later constructed the plaster mould over a period of weeks once the clay had hardened slightly. I filled the finished mould with more plaster, then chipped off the mould to reveal the finished piece inside. I will post more process photos and videos soon.
