- April 30, 1996 to May 18, 1996
The concept for the "hibernacula" project has evolved from issues raised in my most recent series, "romantic notions" (see slides 1-17). The "romantic notions" series examines and interferes with the construction and results of gender based roles and stereotypes and delves into how these ideas are perpetuated in our society and within ourselves. This work was conceived from a feminist perspective and from a position of not conforming entirely to feminine models inherent in our sociall structures. In researching and examining aspects of gender and other social stereotypes in relation to the construction of identity I have begun to focus on memory in both a cultural/social and personal context.
