With thanks to the team at The Koppel Project for the endless support.

The work aims to collectively and creatively interrogate superstitions that have been passed down through generations, which all contribute to the taboo nature of menstruation. The exhibition invites visitors to imagine a world where such myths were true, and to immerse themselves in the social concepts that have been tying women down for centuries.


Containing artwork by Psychonaut artists Francesca Fatichenti, Lavinia Grippa, Eva Mateos Rodriguez and Arielle Zilkha, the responses take various forms, including photography, mixed media, installation, film and painting. Some of the work delves into the ostracising effects of society on women, whilst others explore the absurdity of century-old myths through a modern-day lens.
