Angela Fremont
New York, NY
Neighborhood: Bay Ridge

ARTIST STATEMENT: In April 2014, 276 girls, ages 11-15, were kidnapped from their school in Chibok Nigeria. I am a public school art teacher of young children in Brooklyn. This event struck me very hard. It felt like MY students had been abducted. It felt personal. I have been concentrating on making the girls for the past year. They are seated or standing on books, cut in half, the covers and spines painted black and wired together symbolizing their lost education. To date I have created 111 figures. Each figure is drawn, painted and numbered in a book where I am tracking my progress. The figures are also the subject of drypoint engravings I have been printing. I would like to show these figures, with interpretive text, calling attention to the trauma of women and girls, and teach workshops making clay figures, listening to the stories of the participants as they make their figures and recording those stories, bearing witness to the trauma of homelessness and domestic violence. Please see the website for more photos and details.
