Sometimes It's Hard To Be A Woman

2014

Taking influence from Tammy Wynette’s “Stand by your Man” Scholl addresses issues of domestic violence. Through the creation of the environment/garments the work is disquieting yet romantic and tells of the more subtle ways abusive relationships can eat away at you.

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.

This project was sponsored, in part, by the Greater New York Arts Development Fund of the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, administered by Brooklyn Arts Council (BAC).
