Project Description

The recreation of the paining 'Rape of Innocence' in a photograph.

Tijera S Williams

Le Viol de L’innocence (2021)

Digital art

This piece challenges modern-day societal responses to victims of sexual assault and rape, who often feel too ashamed to speak up. Referencing Bernini’s marble sculpture ‘Ratto di Proserpina’ and the ‘Rape of Innocence’ this work draws on the artist’s battle with her own rape and sexual assault, and the conversations around the acceptance of her past.
