In Control by artist, Katrina Kajkut
November 29, 2108 - January 4, 2019

Katrina Majkut (My’kut) is a visual artist and writer living and working in Brooklyn, New York. She holds a B.S. in Business Administration from Babson College, and a post-baccalaureate certificate and a Master of Fine Arts degree from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts at Tufts University. Majkut is dedicated to understanding and exploring feminine narratives and civil rights in aesthetics and social practices within mediums such as embroidery, painting and writing. Majkut has been featured in multiple publications including the Huffington Post, VICE Communication's Broadly, listed as one of four international artists starting a new chapter in feminist art by Mic Media in 2014, highlighted as a must-see artist in the Gowanus Open Studios by Hyperallergic. She’s been a featured online artist at the Museum of Contraception and Abortion in Vienna, Austria and the International Museum of Women’s “#EqualityIs” media project. Her art catalogues are in several library collections including the National Museum of Women in the Arts, D.C.

Majkut states, “I am interested in how specific images can subvert the historical domesticity of cross-stitch samplers. Historically, cross-stitch often denoted ideas of womanhood, wifedom and motherhood but excluded bodily functions, autonomy and diverse lifestyles, which are essential for any of those roles. My artwork from In Control attempts to directly challenge this concept by attempting to stitch all modern products related to women’s health/needs with bipartisan, medically honest approaches. It also seeks to respond to contemporary issues surrounding reproductive rights and women’s bodies.”
