MARRIAGE MATERIAL

Multi-disciplinary project created in response to the evangelical Christian purity movement. Stop-motion animation with audio is projected onto bedsheets which have been stitched in red thread with derogatory terms that the church uses to describe women who engage in pre-marital sex.

The bedsheets were also scarred with appropriated images of young girls attending ‘purity balls’, a US phenomenon where girls as young as six years old, attend balls with their fathers and pledge to them to abstain from sex until they are married.
