The Great Hidden Sea Of What I Don't Yet Believe
At the core of my practice is an examination of cultural practices and their attempt to suppress the female capacity. In this piece, Part I of I Feel As If She May Be Vanishing, I grapple tensions between repulsion and pleasure as a way to look at the battle between agency and suppression. I position the image of honeybees, a metaphor of the perfection of the female system, alongside jarring, almost obsessive, actions of the body. These repetitive processes in the work are a reflection of the internal struggle of being trapped in tradition.
