      Lim(b)it, a new installation by Edith Abeyta

      on view May 17th – June 27, 2003



      Walled City, 309 W. Seventh Street, San Pedro, CA 90731

      (310) 985-9714



      Opening Reception: Saturday, May 17th, 7-10 pm



      Using 600 handkerchiefs, three miles of string, found photographs,
      candles, and
      a tree outside of the gallery, Abeyta calls attention to the
      incarcerated women
      who have defended themselves against their abusers. She examines
      this through
      the use of simple, common objects that act as symbols not only for
      the women
      behind bars but also the women murdered by their abusers, and the
      battered
      women who have survived. Commemorative objects resembling souvenirs
      have been
      created for viewers to offer their support with part of the proceeds
      benefiting
      Free Battered Women, a statewide grassroots coalition of activists,
      attorneys,
      therapists, students, community members, and other dedicated
      individuals who
      strive to end the re-victimization of battered women in prison.
