You Are There 2019
Marble dust, mirror, natural light
Installation using mirrors from throughout the College
Trinity College, Cambridge
A woman either as a passing reflection or as a portrait preserved in paint had been scarce in the College. Yet throughout its five hundred year history, the lives and influence of women have consistently made their mark. In this work, I brought together mirrors and frames, property of the College, to consider this visual hiatus. Representations of College members – the portraits, plaques and statues that fill every space – leave you wondering, where are the women?
