What we think about when we dream about home

Reproductive health is always a political question: it’s significant for women’s empowerment, their social status, health, and their right to decide the course their own lives. When thinking about the visual representation of this issue, I was drawn to the word “reproduction,” and its diverse meanings. I delved into the archives to find the voices of women who had no information about reproductive health. In the process of “reproducing” their voices, I entered a dialogue between women from different times, with vastly different access to information about their own bodies.

In this instance, dialogue itself has a “reproductive” function. It occurs in the space that women have been limited to throughout the centuries. These dialogues are an attempt to illustrate my “conversation” with female auteurs from the past, who always struggled to free their protagonists from the “sacred space.”
