We Bowed Our Heads is an installation specific to the site of Fountain St. Church’s main sanctuary. It is two films projected through a mass of fabric suspended high above the congregation’s heads and viewed from their seats but also visible while roaming the space at the balcony tier or ground level on both sides next to the stained glass. In these films, Robertson explores her crisis of faith and asks if religion was ever meant to be fair to women. She insists there must be a place for them as leaders outside of the traditional roles of gender expectations, if there is to be a role for them at all.
