84 cm x 87 cm
The 'crises' of a woman's life have been much descanted upon by men medical writers [and] perhaps the most artificially created has been her 'change' *
*Marie Stopes, Change of Life in Men and Women
The Menses Tapes (Come Play With Me) is a work in poster format that takes the letters from the word menopause as a starting point. Language is limited to the letters drawing comparison to the limitations imposed upon women. Women's bodies have been and still are; designated dangerous, controlled by men and our natural rhythms pathologized.
