MATTER OF FORCE
This project is a "construct" submitted for a group show at Richard Anderson Gallery in Soho. It was titled, "Songs of Retribution"and was curated by Nancy Spero.
One hundred female artists submitted work to this show, expressing mostly anger as a result of injustice women face in our society today.
Our "device" took form of a sharp, blade-like piece of steel, forced into "compression" via the pressure of structural cables pulling in "tension". This instrument created from yet trapped by these forces reveals a concave space, breast-like in form, exposing a wound where soundless songs of retribution echo into space.
