In addition to its devastating health effects, COVID-19 has resulted in an increase in domestic violence cases. It is a horrendous story that is, sadly, only part of an ever-growing realization—a “shadow pandemic,” as the United Nations has claimed. A veritable scourge against women around the world. Along with the help of some friends (new and old) from Mexico and the U.S., one woman has channeled her frustration regarding this alarming trend into a unique therapeutic artform. The results have resonated far and wide.

In her most recent installation, “Memory Palace,” British artist and stage designer Es Devlin used a massive space, further amplified by mirrors and visual illusion, to convey the journey of humanity – past, present, and future. The work, which just concluded a showing at the Pitzhanger Manor & Gallery in London, features noteworthy events in humanity, carved from bamboo and given life and dimension.
The story of Troy dates back 3,000 years. It has been told time and time again through legends, books, theater, and film throughout the centuries. The Greek poet Homer wrote about it in the eighth century B.C. and ancient Greek and Roman artists captured its intrigue on canvas and in clay.
