Woman Story

The core of the Woman Story installation is a series of 24 paintings on reclaimed panelling, in a room that is filled with hanging comments written by women. These notes are being added to by gallery visitors, so the space changes overtime, and the myriad of views and perspectives changes, as well. The installation includes some other pieces (see bottom of the page) for contemplation and exploration. However, the art, as I see it, is in the minds and experiences of the viewers. The installation is different for everyone, since we all come to it with our own history and experiences, and will read and contribute to the work in our own unique ways.

Woman Story Participatory Notes on Womanhood

Notes were left anonymously and hung up throughout the gallery on threads, so that the open space became much more obvious - almost viscous - and gave depth and perspective to thoughts and perceptions of the work, as well as literal space for contemplating the thoughts of others, and an increased awareness of viewers' bodies and movements. The notes flutter in response to movements in the room. This is a way to activate both the air in the room and the participation of visitors to the gallery.
