Ebb

Ebb

Amy Jenkins. Ebb, 1996.

Description:
The projected image of blood-clouded water fills a miniature tub into which a woman climbs, crossing the static bounds of space and object. Slowly, one begins to notice the blood recede into her body, the water clearing. Bleeding every month is a defining female experience, yet "Ebb" is a rite of purification in reverse. She gathers up her womanhood and climbs out of the tub, fortified by the transfusion. Link to view video on artist's website: http://www.amyjenkins.net/videos/ebb.html
