''Woman.Object.Corpse'', curated by Meghna Singh, Centre for African Studies, University of Cape Town, South Africa, April 2013

In May 2012, the Greek Police arrested and imprisoned initially 17 and then 5 more women with the charge of  “willing heavy bodily harm” against prostitution customers. All women faced the violent action of pillorying as HIV infected prostitutes when their portraits and full body pictures were released in high resolution in the internet and other media as well as their personal information such as parents names, date and place of birth, place of residence. The minister of Health described the women as "health bombs" for the "Greek family men". In March 2013, all women were proved to be innocent and were released.
