Elizabeth Cady Stanton Biographical Memorial (1995):
My early graduate work was focused on the place of women and lesbians within society, exploring identity through photography, artist books and video. After earning my MFA, I was invited to participate in the Bronx Council on the Arts’ temporary site specific installation at the Woodlawn Cemetery in the Bronx; from the long list of people interred there, Elizabeth Cady Stanton’s name stood out. Not only was she a founding advocate of equal rights, but she had a close friendship with Susan B. Anthony, the nature of which was explored in my installation.
The “Gravestone” contains 27 drawers that pull out to reveal elements of Stanton’s life. Surrounding the “gravestone” are stepping stones that lead up to, around, and beyond. These stones signify women who have worked towards women’s rights.
