These four drawings reference the life cycle of the HIV virus and the stigma attached to the disease. The first drawing highlights the intensity of stigma that people have endured throughout history but the stigma and discriomation becomes interrupted through the power of protest, access to medical treatment, and education. The drawings were site specific and displayed on the light fittings in the gallery.
