March 2018: installation focusing on people that made or are making history under the power of the Feminine. Including all persons, that identify as, are driven by, or live as a woman. In her book, The Bond Between Women, China Galland travels the world to meet women who are working to heal the world by being on the metaphorical and real battlefields in the midst of danger to bring real change and healing. These posters will reflect McDonnell’s research on the ones who have made or are making history through what Galland calls “Compassionate Wrath” - the state in which one is both Fierce and Compassionate.
