Broken

Susan Clinthorne

In this installation: Beautiful handmade dolls with wings are trapped in birdcages. They represent enslaved and prostituted children. Some of the cages will be held by mannequins, others will be hung or placed on stands. An old bed and mattress will be used as part of a scenario that resembles an imaginary decrepit brothel room. The stage is set with movable walls and a vanity complete with mirror, cosmetics and condoms. The bed will have a quilt made with flags representing many countries including the USA. Also, several paintings of females that imply loss of identity are in the works.
