Unmade Bed

I have an installation that I have finished that I want to exhibit. It's called Unmade Bed and has to do with the sex slave trade. Did you know that the average of the young woman on the street is fourteen?  My installation includes a six foot by six foot quilt, a two foot by four foot rug, and a  life size soft sculpture of a fourteen year old girl.  What you may not be able to make out from the small image is that the rug is made of shredded money and condoms.  Her legs have graphic language from the sex ads on Craigslist. The response has been that it is a powerful piece, but no one has agreed to show it. I think it may have to do with the language on her legs, which is interesting in that I'm sure we have all heard it or something similar. If kids are around, I could cover her legs with a sheet. The girls on the street are as young as nine. It's amazing the vocabulary of young people today.  Please see the pdf file that shows images of Unmade Bed with my artist statement. Contact me and let me know what you think.
