Artist: Adam Matak
Marker and Acrylic on Shower Curtain
Through discussion with women, the artist found that many felt that an “archaic knowledge of a female’s body” exists in the medical community. This inspired the use of a prehistoric image of a dinosaur. The dinosaur has very little arms, suggestive that if it was able to perform a BSE, it may not be extinct. The shower curtain relates to the use of breast health cards in the shower by women for examining breasts. The curtain is also symbolic of a curtain in a medical room. The metal rings of the curtain also give the work an institutional feel.
