Laying Your Cards on the Table 1997

This installation at the Flint Institute of Art dealt with the beliefs of the community. The windows on the greenhouse forms revealed the beliefs of 10 women artists. Chalkboards around the room gave visitors the option to add their own comments. Also notebooks on a table in the gallery provided additional space for beliefs to be recorded. The pile of rocks reminded viewers of the violence that can be associated with openly revealing ones beliefs. Video screens behind the greenhouse form played images of fire which was related to the recent burnings of African American churches.
