1000 Hours of Women's Work  :  Sculpture & Performance
Opening September 23, 2016 at Fort Mason Center for Arts & Culture, SF
On display at building D, next to Flax art
through November 2016

The Carrying Stones project is an ongoing series of sculpture, social practice and video works that explores the "double burden" carried by women in the workforce who are also responsible for their families’ unpaid domestic labor.

The concepts for the Carrying Stones works are distilled from the personal narratives of the artist, as well as from those of women of various ages, ethnicities, and socio-economic statuses. 

The inequities that working women face are systemic and pervasive. This project documents the physical, emotional, and practical effects of these imbalanced burdens, and serves as a call-to-action for us all to take strides toward gender equity.
