For Apartment 4, Iris Häussler and The Chipstone Foundation collaborated to make a space for Florence, providing glimpses into her “outside visible life” and to her “inner life” that literally took its shape in the back rooms of this historic mansion. The space is informed by Florence’s dark, introspective art practice that allowed her to work through the personal trauma she experienced as a nurse during the First World War. In addition, Apartment 4 gives hints to what her life in Milwaukee may have been like in the 1940s, providing context for a larger regional narrative and its local histories.
