A collaborative women's project
by Lorri Acott
Videographer Herb Saperstone captures the essence of Lorri Acott's "Unpacking the Shadow" project in this moving 5 minute documentary. Filmed at the opening of the first exhibition of this project, one can see the very beginning of something bound to grow and make all of us begin to understand the power of art and community.
Here's how it works
Each woman creates, discovers, buys, finds, or selects 1 object ...
Some people will choose small found or purchased objects to represent
what they are reclaiming, maybe even items from their own homes. Others
will create something to put on the board like a small painting on a 3x3
canvas or a tiny sculpture.
So far I have the objects and artist statements from over 50 women, with others on
their way. This website is just a sampling of what is to come.
We'll have rolling deadlines for upcoming exhibitions.
email me if you'd like to participate, and I will give you a link.
