Absent Without Being


An impression of the changing emotional experience of a woman undergoing abortion.


A couple’s very first abortion day! Are the issues connected to abortion really caused by it or just revealed from it? What is the importance of abortion when viewing our hideous world at large? Originally presented as a three room installation where first and third rooms have looping projections while the second room has a synchronised 3-screen film.
