Abstract

Radiant Monster, a multi-media work by Canadian artist Elizabeth MacKenzie, is situated within a larger Western feminist multi-disciplinary project of re-thinking the pregnant body. The installation's ambivalence about pregnancy is tied to the control patriarchy exercises over pregnant bodies, especially through verbal and visual representations, including those of medical technology.
