seams (2017)

seams recontextualizes concrete to exist in a feminine space. The world of work is that of my body, of my girlhood memories, of my mother and her mother, of women I do not know, and of “traditional woman’s work,” such as knitting and ceramics. The body is abstracted and sculpturally cartooned, and conceptions of the use or structural integrity of concrete are overshadowed. Moreover, the work plays at the intersection of many worlds: body and natural landscape, vibrancy and decay, liquid and dimension, and surprise and inevitability.

Concrete, fabric, thread, plastic
