Description

My thesis exhibition Body of Love was a multi-media installation including sculpture, video, gif, and mural painting. My work asks questions concerning the body, identity, and the formation of female subjectivity in response to sexual violence. Body of Love explores shame, silencing, and healing through the cultivation of power and pleasure by processes of art making.
How can art represent growth and facilitate recovery in our highly sexualized, individualistic, objectifying culture?
My work asks viewers to consider love as the ultimate weapon of transformation.
