This work deconstructs issues of; the female body, the struggles of identity and existence, and the ‘imagining’ of human beings who may not fit into the limitations of societal norms through layers of embodiment. The fragmented objects focus on highlighting both internal and external insecurities while moving through space.
This work is based on the feminist novel “Bad Feminist” by Roxane Gay. It depicts the struggles of feminist values, specifically regarding the impact of modern media. This is reflected by the act of punctured wounds (both internally and externally), that we carry with us, accumulating weight over time.
This work is based on a collection of reoccuring dreams I have experienced throughout my life. Frequent nightmares have created a space for personal observation developing from the thoughts and battles I was facing at the time reflected through the unconscious. This work mobilized me to be present by contemplating my mind’s interpretation of the challenges I was encountering at the time.
