The Scolds Bridle, How Can We Recover our Imaginations for Dreaming?

I have been sculpting a Scolds Bridle for three months. It is a political artwork that symbolises the historical silencing of women convicted of crime. It has been adorned with words by women in prison or who have been in prison, in the UK and USA. Contributors include Women in Prison UK, BeyondMedia USA, Clean Break, HMP Bronzefield and Women and Prison – A Site for Resistance. The Scolds Bridle should go on exhibit at Greenwich Gallery in late Spring and I will cover the project more fully then. Meanwhile here are some early images of it.
