. “What feminine part of yourself did you have to destroy in order to survive in this world? At what point does femininity become synonymous with apology? Who hurt the people who hurt you? DARKMATTER’s Alok Vaid-Menon is trying to figure it out.” In collaboration with Garage Project, Women’s Refuge New Zealand, Wellington Rape Crisis, InsideOUT, an incredible organisation who work to make Aotearoa a safe(r) place for young people of diverse genders and sexualities. Other supports and funders were JPEG2000, Creative New Zealand, Wellington City Council Public Art Grants and New Zealand Portrait Gallery.
