Border Industrial Complex - 02


Acrylic on Canvas

16 x 20 inches

Nameless depicts the consequences of a policy designed to break the spirit of innocent women and force them to do things that they would otherwise find unimaginable. It is a depiction of a crime against women and the nameless victims of the Border-Industrial Complex.
All the refugees detained in Nauru are kept there indefinitely. They are never told when, or even if, they will ever leave. There is no way to leave, to reach freedom. Abortions are illegal in Nauru and the Australian Government only permits refugee women to be transferred to Australia for an abortion after five months into a woman's pregnancy.
These women were trying to reach freedom, and the price was that their babies will be forever Nameless. They were collateral damage to suit their unapologetic strategy of Nameless dehumanization. The men making the decisions in the Australian Government were in control of these women's bodies.
