For this piece I am focusing on the woman’s role in society by looking at traditionally feminine practices. Somehow, practices such as knitting and sewing are seen as incredibly domestic and can make a woman appear weak even though it is actually the traditional way in which women would provide for society. By knitting myself a blindfold, I am showing how society ignores female abilities. I chose to perform this piece in front of a church because of the continued patriarchal tendencies religion still has. In addition, this specific church has a large mural of religious figures. Upon further study, I noticed that not one woman is among the people.
