Taking aim, Lela Karagianni
mixed media on Hahnemühle print
Liane Lang is on a pilgrimage since 2018 to find the women who have been remembered with statues in public spaces across Europe. The rulers and spouses, artists and scientists, nurses and nuns.
Unreliable estimates put the number of women at between 0.5 and 2% of total statues.
Staging interventions and interactions for large scale photographs, the project is one of interpretation and activism, bringing forgotten objects and lives into fresh focus and showing the important roles women played in the face of oppression. For the few that have been remembered, countless were written out of history.
