Her Drawer, Tianna Fowler, 2013, wood, acrylic paint
For this project an anonymous tumblr submission page was created where I asked women or female-identified individuals to submit a short blurb about things they keep tucked away in their drawer. The responses were varying in intensity from momentos of lost children, to weapons for protection, to hidden chocolate stashes, to sexual objects, to objects of past loves. The stories were personal, yet understandable to a large group of people. The objects were then cut out of blocks of wood and painted on the front, and the answers written on the back. People then were invited to go through “her drawers” and discover the objects hidden within.
Succulents 1 of 3, Tianna Fowler, 2013, acrylic with live plants
