“As an inhabitant of this city, which generates such a large proportion of its income through the prostitution industry, the issue is one I feel compelled to tackle with my work, but I struggle to find a way to approach it as an artistic project… so many feminist controversies, so many complexities I am wary of the battleground. How to make art from something this desolate, this vulnerable?”
— Jimini Hignett
“In Mulier Sacer Jimini Hignett juxtaposes the fragile stories and photographs of women who have escaped from forced prostitution in the Netherlands with other pieces of writing – an essay about the uneasy relationship between prostitution and feminism by Professor Maggie O’Neill, a selection of blog entries by an ex-prostitute turned abolitionist, an interview with a sociologist who procures sex-workers for her handicapped clients, and a proposed change in Dutch legislation by a crown prosecutor specialising in human trafficking.”
