Installation, 1997
Hebrew Union College Museum, NYC


Part of ‘Rage/Resolution’, an exhibition of women’s art about Judaism, “64 Stones” was a wall installation that was based on two misogynist components of the religion: the morning prayer (where a man thanks god for not being a woman) and the ancient tradition of stoning for adultery. The squares were made of skin-like papers with embedded stones and domestic detritus, along with drawn and written elements. Between the 64 squares laid out in a grid, are tiny pieces of paper pinned like butterflies to the wall – bits of a prayer book with words that reference god’s name.
