Trappings & Taking Stock
Girls Working, the collaborative team of artists Tiffany Ludwig
and Renee Piechocki, launched in 2001. Two Girls Working position
themselves as assets to daily civic action and dialogue. The purpose
of the collaboration is to apply their qualities as artists (multitasking,
attention to detail, collaboration, isolation, restlessness and
diligence) to the systems, social expectations, structure and syntax
of everyday life.
first project, Trappings, activates dialogue about power
and the creation of personal identity by asking women the question,
"what do you wear that makes you feel powerful?"
Taking Stock, their current project, asks men "what do you do that makes you feel valuable?"
