COLLAGE ON VIEW
She Said She Said She Said
at the Annette Howell Turner Center for the Arts in Valdosta, Georgia, USA
11 January-24 February 2020
She Said She Said She Said is a collective of three female-identifying artists: Evelyn Davis-Walker, Amy Tingle, and Julie Graves Krishnaswami. Using collage, sculpture, video, fiber/textiles, and multi-media installation, this exhibition contemplates how the five senses—touch, sight, hearing, smell, and taste—serve to heal trauma, to mend fractured relationships, and to soothe ancestral heartache. The Collective engages in a conversation about the labor of repair by women, ranging from healing trauma to mending the harms experienced in daily life. The work presented here includes metaphors of doors, domesticity, and transcription as pathways to psychic repair. Along these pathways, the artists consider how sensory engagement and literal interactions with their work fosters healing, and ultimately, allows one to choose whether and when to share their own story.
The question of how art can serve the act of mending and repairing a broken heart is relevant as we collectively begin to heal as a society. Creation and storytelling aided by the senses can serve to start the process of healing.
