This piece is inspired by the story of the miraculous Dionne Quintuplets born in Canada in the 1920s. They were taken away from their family by the government and raised across the street by doctors and nurses. This sterile upbringing, closeted away from the real world, scarred them for life. The public could pay to view them through a screen roof as they played.
Dionne doll sets were coveted by little girls all over the world. This doll is Yvonne, owned by my mother.

I had made a cyanotype of a doll's dress. The spirit-like image of the straps inspired the rest of this piece.
