Heather Marie Scholl is a subversive Jewish artist and activist who describes herself as follows: "I spend a lot of time thinking about how we’re born into fantasies of the way life should be and the ways that comes crashing down around us. For me, this often means issues of gender and sexuality. However I often touch on many different mythological social constructs, including race and class." (heathermariescholl.com)
Scholl's project 'Whitework': "Whitework examines white women’s roles in the establishment and maintenance of white supremacy. This work personalizes a visual discussion on race by merging my family’s southern history, my experiences and U.S. History with a deep and productive emotionality. By owning and exploring our histories of white supremacy and racism I am interested in how we can heal individual and societal wounds around race"
Scholl's project 'Sometimes It's Hard To Be A Woman': "This installation bridges Scholl’s personal narrative with larger conversations about the body, women, feminism, identity, and sexuality. This project is emotional and personal yet universal."
