digital prints, video, various conjuring materials
This work is a dialogue between black womem and environment. Informed by collapse and time. To survive, one must know space.
I dream about black women. How we are constantly informed by our nature.
This nature encourages an understanding out of form.
So. What is "erasure" and what is a "conjuring" - and how might those lines overlap? How attached can we be in these interspaces? Even the space of body. There is repetition, returning again and again to a place to [re]build. What conjuring is used? Not just to survive but strive.
