GELATINE JAWS is a selection of poems and drawings by Anna McCarthy about violence against womxn, illustrated primarily by images of overgrowing plants as a symbol for overcoming physical and psychological trauma. The title references a poem by the same name where the victim describes how a dj dislocated her jaw in a nightclub. Trance-like, she repeats the word gelatine jawas if wishing her jaw (or even entire skeleton) could spring back into place as if nothing had occurred.
