*Trigger warning: discusses sexual violence*
‘What does your rapist do now?’
Exposing Stitches asks this question of Territorians and details their answers through works painstakingly embroidered on recycled bedding and hung among the Civic Park palms during both weekends of Darwin Fringe Festival 2022.
Confronting, thought-provoking and at times heart-breaking, this installation aims to stimulate conversation and challenge commonly-held beliefs pertaining to perpetrators of sexual violence.
