“How far would you go to save your” is a response to Breast Ironing. Breast Ironing is a cruel brutality that happens in parts of Cameroon, Congo and parts of Southern Africa.

As a response, Shumirai designed an intimate experiential exhibition. By creating a multi sensory environment using a variety of mediums such as sound, visual and tactile material, users follow a victims story.

The experience allows the users to find out more about the sheer brutality of breast ironing who will empathise with the story and force them into action.
