Terrortory is a video and archival print that highlights the violence of state-sanctioned forced birth and assault on body sovereignty. Christofascist ideologies have infected state and federal legislatures, designating wombs as state property. This artwork protests oppressive policies and practices that strip more than half of the country of their reproductive freedom.
Terrortory was presented by Sotheby’s and Unicorn Dao as part of My Body My Business, a sale specially curated by Unicorn DAO co-founder and Pussy Riot creator Nadya Tolokonnikova, with a portion of proceeds from this sale benefiting reproductive healthcare organizations, including Planned Parenthood. This sale includes a variety of works from traditional and digitally native women artists, who use their art as a medium to advocate and explore a wide range of topics related to women's rights, including reproductive rights, gender-based violence, body image, representation and many more. These artists are united in their commitment to creating art that challenges existing power structures, promoting gender equality, and celebrating the diverse experiences and perspectives of women. My Body My Business is a dialogue between some of the most established artists in the traditional art scene as well as trailblazing digital art creators empowered by a common cause.
