Parturient Prospects

01 Nov 2006

'Dixie's works expose the points of resistance, fragility and uncertainty within discourses about maternity. In revealing the devices and tropes that have been used to counter or manage the threat of female power and subjectivity, in suggesting that they are ultimately provisional rather than essential and stable signifiers, her works invite viewers to question the ideologies underpinning not only historical but also contemporary representations of birth. (Schmahmann, 2007)
