The Common Thread: Sexual Violence In Contemporary Art (Group exhibition) "The aim of The Common Thread is to raise awareness through the arts about the global pandemic of sexual violence against women: which is a consequence of false dogmas, inequalities and stereotypes. The proverbial saying ‚common thread‘ relates to a theme or characteristic found in various stories or situations; thus becoming a metaphorical symbol for the exhibition concept."
On November 5th- November 30th, 2015 (coinciding with International Elimination of Violence Against Women Month) I exhibited SheLL Project and installed over 400 empty hand crafted wire hangars throughout the halls of The Regional Court of Munich in Germany. SheLLProject is an ongoing project and still accepts participants today. Although coat hangers are mainly known as a symbol of the reproductive justice movement in my exhibition they represented the women that have been violated and justice has not been served as well as providing a space for new participants to come forward and donate their dresses and tell their stories to the public.
