“SHE’S YOURS NOW!” is a multimedia laboratory brothel, consisting of 3 rooms; Waiting Room, Womb and Delivery. As the viewer walks through the narrow path, they encounter multitudes of collages of female-representing figures and a distorted soundscape playing a conversation between two characters; the fetus and the carrier. The work questions the concept of pregnancy and society’s obsession with PUSH-AND-PULL, and how it restricts the definition of gender.  

As a queer person - experiencing body dysphoria - it leaves a feeling of foundationless and without purpose when procreation is hyper-centralised.
