A Collaboration between Siobhán Clancy and Emma Campbell.
The breakthrough in the Republic of Ireland is promising and signifies a shift in attitudes towards an appreciation for full bodily autonomy. But the politiking around this removal of an oppressive constitutional clause that denied abortion access involved difficult compromises. During this time many activists working in solidarity for change on both sides of the border experienced a concentrated and prolonged spell of anger. They did a lot of different things with that anger. Almost none of them showed it at the time. So we asked them about it afterwards. Here you see the physical embodiment of some of their responses.
We know that anger is complicated and unique to every person. We also know that you can read a dictionary. So rather than attempting to introduce our theme with some empirical definition, we invite you to enter into the subjective, visceral interpretation of recent rage from the bellies of revolutionaries.
