Use of pins and thread

IMG_0674

The pins and thread are there as visible scars of how we as women are willing to change our bodies to fit in with what is expected of us.

I am not specifically looking at modifying the vagina, the vagina is a symbol of a woman or somebody aspiring to be a woman, but I have looked at Female genital mutilation and how they aren’t given the option on whether they change there sexual organs and trans-women who aspire to wanting to feel at home in there bodies.

The pins are there to represent what we are willing to do to our bodies in order to conform to what is expected of us.
