FT Weekend presents Laia Abril: On Abortion
Today, safe and efficient means of abortion exist, yet 47,000 women die due to botched abortions, every year. Laia Abril‘s project On Abortion – both an installation and a new book – documents and conceptualises the dangers and damage caused by women’s lack of legal, safe and free access to abortion. As she weaves her net of questions around ethics and morality, Abril also creates a series of meditative visual and textual manifestations of the social triggers, stigmas and taboos around abortion that have remained invisible until now. On Abortion is the first chapter of Abril’s long-term project A History of Misogyny, visual research undertaken by using historical and contemporary comparisons. It was exhibited at Les Rencontres d’Arles in 2016 and published as a book by Dewi Lewis in 2017.
