2014// KHATNA


This is a video artwork that explores the inter-generational effects of Female Genital Mutilation on a family. The work was conceived through a workshop process. We consulted with Khadija Gbla and through this process of information and personal story telling we asked the four performers to go away and come back and deliver a monologue to camera. Each performer was loosely given a role or character. These characters come together to form a family, a mother and her three children.
