About the Piece

At the far left of  Scroll the viewer sees two horizontal, parallel lines that move from left to right. As these two lines proceed to the right in a straight path, an unwanted object forces them to detour around it. After clearing this obstacle they continue on their parallel course. Another impediment, and another, are all successfully cleared and the lines continue forward. The obstacles, the letters of the word cunt, represent womankind and the two lines represent the linier path of the patriarchy (not men, but the patriarchy which represents the cultural oppression of women). This piece affirms, that however hard the masculine tries to suppress the feminine, it cannot be concealed. Viewers have commented that  Scroll also look like a spine, or Hebrew text.
