Ritual Love By Jackson Shuri 2009-2014

Ritual Love By Jackson Shuri 2009-2014

I took your Hand and now we are one. Blood flows from you and it flows from me. Some find it strange that I care to share by inflicting this wound that cause pain and blood to flow from my penis. Others marvel at this cultural act that seems barbaric, but this act strengthen our marriage and seals our spirits.  - Poem By Audrey T. Jackson and Jackson Shuri.  Made especially for this work. 

This work was inspired by a story I read where an aboriginal man would cut his penis each time the wife was on her cycle so that they would be sharing in the experience.

Hysterectomy By Jackson Shuri 2009

A hysterectomy is a surgery to remove a woman's uterus (also known as the womb). The uterus is where a baby grows when a woman is pregnant. During the surgery the whole uterus is usually removed. The doctor may also remove your fallopian tubes and ovaries.

 

This work was Inspired by stories my mother told me about fibroids, and heavy bleeding that lead to her having an hysterectomy.

Isolation are You seeing Red By Jackson Shuri 2009

Isolation are You seeing Red By Jackson Shuri 2009

This is a very Spiritual work. In some parts of the world, in particular the rural areas, women are isolated from their villages when they are on their cycle. They are considered too powerful and dangerous, or they are considered unclean, hence the isolation.
