In Control - Katrina Majkut
“In Control” defies the traditional medium and subjects of cross-stitch and instead responds to the increasing debates and turmoil over women’s reproductive rights and safety. Historically, embroidered “samplers” only showed a woman how to keep a household, children and a husband. Majkut rejects the obsolete, domestic functionality of samplers through a comprehensive inventory of women’s medical, menstrual and contraceptive products—products that continue to be on the periphery of legality and social approval. She has turned the medium into a contemporary woman’s demonstration of a woman’s ability to care for and right to control her own body.
