PROOF OF THEIR LOVE/GIFTS FROM MEN 1986-1997
6′ wide, x 4′ high x 18″ deep.
Proof of Their Love/Gifts from Men 1986-1997 is a display case filled with gifts I received from different men over a nine year period. I had been single and dating for most of that time and I began to become aware of all the “souvenirs” I had accumulated from different people. There was a poignancy to this collection when I put it together in 1997. Many of the men I had lost touch with in a way that was sad. Some of the objects were happy reminders of them. This collection changes for me over time. Since I originally put this together, I am happily married, have lost touch with some of the men and strengthened my relationships with others, though ultimately this collection is a reminder of my single years.
