Performed at: Scarred, Shifting and Sacred Sites: an evening of art, advocacy and performance, curated by Something Human for Autograph ABP: Rivington Place, London. This event took Aida Silvestri’s Unsterile Clinic, an exhibition to raise awareness of the widespread practice of Female Genital Mutilation (FGM), as a cue to reflect on the gendered, cultural body as a site of struggle, recuperation and possible transformations. Through the event performers’ responses addressed the body as a living map of physical and emotional scars, a site for confronting institutional boundaries as well as the ground for individual and collective resistance. 
 
Artists who participated in this event:?Oreet Ashery, Raju Rage, Helena Walsh and Eca Eps.
