I Take My Body Back
In her installation, Kelsey Lynn aims to build a support system for fellow survivors of sexual assault and, by example, to encourage people to speak about their own experiences without shame. She has built a hanging structure from women’s panties strong enough to hold her, and she invites visitors to help her overcome her experience of sexual assault by ripping out her story, which she embroidered on a sequence of panties hanging on the gallery wall.
