Rachel Fallon & Alice Maher
The Map, 2021
A collaborative textile sculpture reimagined the life, legacy, and mythology of Mary Magdalene and her impact on women’s lives. Structures and languages of cartography were used to challenge the historical context of mapping and give voice to the invisible work of women.
