This humorous piece was made for an exhibition of artists’ self-portraits for which Schaechter decided to create a unique contribution, a completely fictionalized autobiography. The project was intentionally both funny and exploratory. Multiple vignettes, created using photo stencils, hint at the potential dramas and traumas, real or imagined, in the life of a little girl. At the center of the panel, the girl stands in the middle of a beautiful field of flowers, wringing her hands as she imagines a bomb dropping on her head.
