Full-color photographs of video, sound, and photographic installation two translucent pages with graphics in red ink. Text in English, essays by Moira Roth and Hilary Robinson. Beautifully design to recreate the experience of the installation, this catalog was created on the occasion of a traveling exhibit: Irish Museum of Modern Art, Dublin (1992),  Tate Gallery, Liverpool, Kunstlerhaus, Graz, Austria and Street Level Photographic Gallery, Glasgow, all in 1993. Two powerful women artists come together for this installation addressing Irish women's sexual and reproductive rights. Rare in the trade. 

From Cummins website, "The artwork addresses the silencing of women and the Irish State's control over our sexuality, fertility, and bodily autonomy. In a deeply repressive social and political climate, Cummins and Walsh utilise their bodies as active agents, subverting oppressive religious and legislative controls.
