Missing Eve, 2016. Installation and performance

The United Nations recognizes that some 200 million women and girls are ‘demographically missing’ worldwide, at this moment in time.  The scale of this phenomenon varies globally and has many different causes, such as sex selective abortion, human trafficking, sex slavery, female abduction, honour killings, domestic violence, and so on. The most extreme cases involve the killing of women just because they are women, known as femicide.

Missing Eve commemorates all women around the world who are suffering or have suffered from violence and abuse.
