The Art of Prevention

The 2015 theme of The Art of Prevention is Protect Your Head. This year, NARAL Pro-Choice Ohio field organizer Annie Krol is a participating artist at the event.

The title of her work is called Boudicca after the fearless feminine warrior from the second century British resistance movement against Roman colonization.

Annie said:

When brainstorming about headpieces, I knew I wanted to do a fusion headpiece incorporating elements of nature (I’m using foliage from my yard) and juxtaposing them drastically with the bright pink latex pop of condoms. The silver head will sport the headpiece permanently as part of a sculpture, embodying Boudicca herself.


Annie continued:

When people look at my sculpture at AoP, I would like them to get lost in the spectacle of wild brambles and erotic shapes. In an attempt to glorify the strength of feminine identity, my helmet of protection is a whimsical interpretation of the strength of the divine feminine.
