PILL, 2022
marble, 28cm x 28cm 


In the summer of 2022, AliPaloma created this artwork in response to the drastic political decision in the USA to abolish the national right to abortion,
50 years after its introduction. The sculpture features the feminist protest slogan ‘MY BODY, MY CHOICE,’ which is used worldwide to emphasize the right to self-determination over one’s own body in sexual, marital, and reproductive decisions. Although abortion is allowed under certain conditions in Italy, the right-wing government continues to restrict access to abortion, and many doctors refuse to perform the procedure. ‘MY BODY, MY CHOICE’ has been
literally carved in stone, highlighting the necessity of preserving decision-making freedom in matters concerning one’s own body
