“To keep Vigil one must remain watchful and wakeful. We keep vigil in mourning, in prayer, in ritual, over our sick. We keep vigil in protest.
Some of these women have settled down to keep vigil over others, some keep vigil over the viewer. Active, others seem to have fallen from duty; some refuse, burying their heads in the sand. There are moments when clusters of Cycladic women worship the Venus of Willendorf and moments when they appear to mourn her or to ignore her.
Febrer is a multi-media artist whose practice is filtered through the lens of printmaking and memory. Every stain, shadow, and experience leaves an indelible imprint. These are shared imprints that are altered by time, context, and an individual’s perception.”
