Miss Conception
2012
Rhinestones, birth control pills, enamel and metal
4" x 6" x 6"
This tiara is a part of a performance piece that was featured during the Art Miami VIP reception on Dec 4th, and at Vernissage, Art Basel on Dec. 5th.

Miss Conception offers a wry commentary on 21st century sexual politics, with a focus on birth control. My outfit includes a beauty pageant dress, along with a rhinestone tiara and scepter covered in birth control pills, and an embroidered sash that reads "Miss Conception." I engaged with visitors and handed out hand-lettered cards with intriguing misconceptions about reproduction.
