Stone breaker is a text drawn in ink on paper with a knife, pasted onto a misplaced door as part of the exhibition Female Executioner. The text describes an experience of gender while a resident artist at Gasworks in summer 2016. The main text, in black ink, is interrupted by — or formed around — bold phrases in red, which may be agreeing with the narrative or shouting it into submission.

The gallery entrance, without its doors, was filled by Inert being (2017). Beyond this, in the first white room of the gallery, was the video Adulteress (2017), and the print work Miserable wretch (2017). In the woad-blue second room was Stone breaker and Wax figure (2017).
