The Procedure / Ingreppet (2020)

Mural, acrylic paint - Detroit Gallery

Min Kropp, Mitt Val/Mi Cuerpa Mi Decision


-A visit to the gynaecologists is often associated with feeling intimately exposed. The experiences shared in a gyno chair are described by most women as uncomfortable and sometimes unsafe. Yet its design has not changed much at all over the past century, it still being accepted and unquestioned by our public healthcare system. At the same time, this gyno chair represents a great privilege for us who benefits from free abortion laws and liberal reproductive care, provided with heavenly subsidised to free healthcare.

Receiving good medical care, using a safe abortion method in this type of chair unifies all women globally across all borders. This is

the vision, this is the dream.


Without this privilege, with abortion being a criminal act and women imprisoned even for having miscarriages, it is not a unifier. It is a divider, which divides us in two:  

the ones who may sit in this chair

and the ones who may not.    



The procedure is a mural painted in a 1:1 scale based on the approximate size of a gynaecology chair. It was painted on-site at Detroit Stockholm-Gallery for the safe abortions rights-exhibition
