The Other Border Wall Project
February 17-March 30, 2018
Collaborative project with Jenn Meridian and Tereneh Idia to counter the current administration's concept of a border wall through creative resistance. Curated by David Janesko. otherborderwallproject.com
My installations and site-specific sculptures draw on a language I have been developing with textiles since my first stitch in the year 2000, or better yet since I was first wrapped in a blanket as a newborn. I aim to respond with clarity and sensitivity to the spaces, materials, and people involved in each project.
In my personal studio practice, I cut, dye, scrub, press, stitch, and splice material (usually fabric) to make sculptures and painting-like objects. I work back and forth between rule-following and improv, grids and deformations, color experiments and found hues. Building these works influences my thoughts on intangibles such as empathy, intimacy, identity, growth, and loss.
