TAG! You’re It!, 2013 (AiOP)Art in Odd Places-NUMBER/Greensboro


TAG! You’re It!  A participatory installation where the viewer was asked to transcribe their personal stories in regard to some of the staggering numbers and statistics impacting women’s reproductive health and rights onto manila shipping tags provided at the site. They were invited to hang their tags among the installation tags hanging from the yarn and painted floral sculpture integrated with the already existing climbing vines at the site, emphasizing women’s resilience even when circumstances or outside forces try to defeat us. Red tags with a variety of statistics impacting women were previously attached to the sculpture. Though women’s reproductive health and rights appear to be a political game being played by mostly men in legislative positions, these issues and statistics are far from the light-hearted childhood game we played for amusement.
