Titled The Girlfriend Who Became His Ragdoll, from installation Two-Faced which focuses on the commonality of abuse and the effects of abusive relationships on the survivor. Merging sculpture and text, they have written poems based on stories from peer survivors that have been willing to share their experiences through interviews. Each piece represents a story from a peer with a furniture piece that correlates with it. With all the survivors being peers of Saba, it brings light to how common abuse is and how easy it is to be connected to abuse without even knowing it.
This piece in particular is about an abusive partner relationship where many different forms of abuse were present. The abuser was emotionally, sexually, and physically abusive to the survivor and used many manipulation tactics like gaslighting. This piece exemplifies the hardships that many women and men face in their relationships and how complicated sexual assault can be. A factor in sexual assault that we commonly overlook is that most of the time rape and sexual assault are perpetrated by people that the victim knows well and not just some stranger making these traumatic events very confusing and difficult to overcome.
If to be shown in again, the piece would be just a mattress with the sheets mounted onto the wall with no bedframe, to further impact the viewer.
