Tales of a Phoenix: The Letting Go Project as part of the WAH Center’s Togetherness & Oneness Exhibition
Yana Schnitzler’s Tales of a Phoenix: The Letting Go Project harnesses the power of ritual to bring women from across the world together in a unified release of old patterns that no longer serve their personal growth. Over the past year, women contributed pieces of fabric inscribed with their intentions of what they wish to let go of. An ongoing project, Schnitzler now stitches these testimonies together into a room-filling skirt, representing the global collective feminine voice. With pieces from over 40 different countries and states, the work creates a tapestry of personal stories from all walks of life and cultures, offering a glimpse of where women stand with the struggles they face.
Tales of a Phoenix: The Letting Go Project is made possible, in part with funding from the National Endowment for the Arts. Further support was provided by Chashama and The Feminist Art Project.
