Cara Rose Stiegler
not long, just for3ver
New York based (California raised) artist Cara Stiegler is a lifelong cinephile with a special interest in documenting the darker side of the human condition through nonlinear storytelling. Her latest piece, not long, just for3ver, explores the compartmentalization of trauma within American domestic spaces, through the eyes of the chronically ill woman. The sculpture explores themes of loss, isolation, boredom, rage, loneliness and melancholy and questions what it means to be a “sick woman.” The dollhouse mimics the stereotypical American home, and what happens when one is forced to inhabit it indefinitely. not long, just for3ver was created in tribute to anyone battling the long term, daily effects of chronic illness(es) and gender based trauma.
