Swimmer and Wall 1993

Bronze, 33 × 17 × 12 cm

A small painted sculpture of a young swimmer that has hit a wall. The rim of a swimming pool is splashed with her blood spilling from her head.

The blood can also be seen as flowing from between her legs.

 

I made this work relating to the book “Mother Daughter Revolution: From Betrayal to Power” by Elizabeth Debold. The book explores the writings and research of American feminist

and psychologist Carol Gilligan and

her colleagues.
