A Roomful of

Missing Women

..The Issues

The issues around Vancouver’s Missing Women were the focus of my art for six years. I was compelled to deal with issues that impacted the lives of so many, including my own. I created an installation that provides opportunity for movement on an intellectual, emotional, and perhaps spiritual level to a plane where the shared commonality of humanity is not limited by social constraints, life circumstances, or geography. “A Roomful of Missing Women” is a non-site specific installation that symbolically restores each woman’s identity and individuality while acknowledging her intrinsic human worth. Additionally, it acts as a reminder that while all humanity shares the trait of dreams and goals, these women will never have the chance to realize theirs.

My Experience

As the daughter of Yugoslavian woman who survived the Nazi Concentration Camps, I was profoundly influenced by my mother’s stories of horror and torture.  The Nazis did more than kill millions; they also subjected many young women to prostitution, forcing them to satisfy the sexual desires of higher ranked officials. Women who refused were tortured to death in front of the other women. I have met women who endured and survived these events.

I also remember my sense of loss and the bewilderment that occurred when my childhood friend became entangled in sex work. She was twelve years old. Years later, I was horrified to read that Debbie’s 14-year-old daughter had been brutally murdered. Due to her life on the streets and probable involvement with drugs, people seemed indifferent to this lost child’s death.

I have always been aware of the unimaginable events that can occur when a group of people becomes marginalized, objectified, and dehumanized. Knowledge that the human condition frequently embraces violence, along with my earlier experiences, has profoundly impacted my art. 

The Human Condition and Humanity

My fascination with humanity has and continues to inform the content of my creative process.  My passionate concerns about social issues, the marginalized segments of society, world events, and the human condition have converged with my desire to explore the format of a complex installation. I communicated the enormity of loss while honouring each woman’s humanity. In “A Roomful of Missing Women.”. I created a physical, visible, sound filled space that integrates and expresses a socio-political consciousness within the format of a conceptual installation.
