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.

FGM ( Female Genital Mutilation) Artifact of the artist.

FGM is fucking barbaric and a freaking violation and invasion!

Being a woman of the African Diaspora I am applaud at this ignorance. This work is in obvious protest of this heinous act. “Female genital mutilation (FGM), also known asfemale genital cutting and female circumcision, is the ritual cutting or removal of some or all of the external female genitalia. The practice is found in Africa, Asia and the Middle East, and within communities from countries in which FGM is common.”
