Art Exhibition - an art installation of Art by Survivors of Abuse featuring
Reception: Saturday, April 9th, 8pm. Show runs through April
from the opening...
I am an Akron artist who is a victim/ survivor of sexual abuse. I am
creating an installation art piece titled Unearthed at the North Water
Street Gallery in Kent, OH, for the week of April 9th. It deals with
the struggle a victim/survivor may have in communicating her experience,
or in feeling understood, and the wholeness that can result when communication
and understanding are achieved. I plan on making a simple mural based
on that idea. Also in the space will be some living plants floating
in water in glass bowls, so you can see their roots for a time along
with their stems; their roots being like the parts of our minds and
experiences that are usually operating unseen, and yet creating much
of our growth (see where I'm heading with this?).
would also like to include, lying out on a few pedestals, some written
pieces by other victim/ survivors of sexual abuse. These can be completely
anonymous if the writer prefer, and could be of any length at all.
