Bagladies: Votive

E. Ingrid Tietz's avatar E. Ingrid Tietz

“Bagladies: Votive” represents one long-standing issue I'm passionate about, i.e. social and economic inequality, in a current context. Who might these “Bagladies” be? We have limited understanding of the diverse circumstances of these women, who are typically denigrated or ignored. These corseted slip-cast porcelain paper bags embellished with lace express the “Bagladies” inner beauty, and the votive lights a wish to alleviate their plight as victims of our current societal trends.
