Then I started to write them down, on very big peace of paper.
got this:
You can see, there is me in the middle, straggling with all these unhappy words. They were unhappy. I didn't realize how both sad and pathetic I was at that time. It just happened that making work about Pearse I let my own emotions creep into it. For good or bad, I don't know. I choose to think it worked. It was about language, identity and me.  I wrote in both English and Russian, as you can see.
A comment from our Big Book of Comments:
"I enjoyed the scarecrows +the words hiding a lady"
Thanks, means a lot. I was hiding, making a protection out of words. It worked.


Когда нарисовала первый рисунок, с сидящими и ждущими девушками, подумала: а о чем это, если честно? Начала делать список слов. Получился длинный и ужасный. Но были там слова: помощь, спасение, надежды, правда не было :) У меня не сохранилось списка на русском, только некоторые переведены, но постараюсь сделать к каждому, как и было в действительности.
Выписала их все, английские и русские, на огромный лист бумаги. Если присмотритесь, там, в этой паутине в середине есть я. В натуральную величину. Вся из слов.
Комментарий к выставке: "Понравились чучела и слова, за которыми скрывается женщина" Ну, там я и пряталасъ.
