About the event
As a woman, what do you wish to let go of?
Yana Schnitzler’s Tales of a Phoenix: The Letting Go Project harnesses the power of ritual to bring women from across the globe together in a unified release of old patterns that no longer serve their personal growth. Over the past year and a half, women contributed pieces of fabric inscribed with their intentions of what they wish to let go of. An ongoing project, Schnitzler now stitches these testimonies together into a room-filling skirt, representing the global collective feminine voice. With pieces from over 40 different countries and states, the work creates a tapestry of personal stories from all walks of life and cultures, offering a glimpse of where women stand with the struggles they face. The project will culminate in a ritual dance performance, where Schnitzler wears the skirt radiating with these women’s collective energy, and conclude with the public destruction of the skirt in a powerful symbol of release and letting go.
Tales of a Phoenix: The Letting Go Project is an interactive pop-up art exhibition at Grove 34 in Astoria that takes place in conjunction with Women’s History Month. Come by and participate!
