Witch's Marks

7‘‘ x 7’’

The “Witch’s Marks” are a series of intimate tapestries depicting portraits of flaws on the artist’s body. In the era of witch hunting, any imperfection on a woman could be used as evidence as a devil’s mark, and condemn her to the fire. As women, we are constantly told to erase any evidence of trial or hardship our flesh has endured. They are afraid that if we keep these ritual marks, we will remember. They are terrified that we will learn to celebrate our bodies: crucibles of infinite strength.

Each tapestry is displayed in a specimen box and held in place with dissection pins.
