Uncomfortable State is a response to recent comments made by an Irish TD that the Citizen’s Assembly decision to repeal the Eight Amendment made him “uncomfortable”. As an Irish woman, comments like this by the people in power make me uncomfortable. The rights I have over my own body must be my own and it is the responsibility of the state to recognise and respect this. In ‘Uncomfortable State’ my body will be erased using green screen technology and dissolved into the land being replaced by a video of the Irish Sea, a stretch of water travelled every day by Irish women to access abortions.
