DEMARCATIONS uses the female body as a landscape to explore memories of a rape. Ragusa focuses on ways in which identity and exoticism are played out on the level of the body.
"DEMARCATIONS explores the experience of date rape, but more specifically how racist assumptions about the bodies of women of color justify acts of physical, psychic and verbal abuse."

TWN acknowledges that in New York we are on the unceded territory of the Lenni Lenape,
Canarsie, Shinecock, and Munsee peoples and challenges the harm that continues to
be inflicted upon Indigenous and People of Color communities here and abroad,
which is why we all need to be part of the struggle for rights, equality and justice.
