Awards, is a co-construction of research, contemplation and response to the history of women being unethically incarcerated; their forced labour within asylums, and their lifestyle choices which led to their incarceration. Reconceptualising the lives of women charged under the Female Refuges Act (FRA), following its revision in 1919; Awards outlines the systemic oppression young women faced when they were asylumed. Women were disciplined for reasons such as feeblemindedness, deviance, and incorrigibility; and this curatorial project highlights the lack of their personal narratives.
