ARTIST STATEMENT: Dialoguing with the history of feminist artists who positioned their bodies as sites for production and political intervention, my video, performance, sculptural and 2D works aim to highlight the ways in which the body is both seen from the outside and felt from the inside.With the body as the central part of my practice I consider how it performs specifically within the highly codified contexts and circumstances that surround sex, desire, organized religion and death. These realms of life are interesting to me because they come with recognizable gestures and actions for the body to enact while also always promising or alluding to a potential transcendence of the physical body into another state beyond it. To navigate my investigations I turn to diverse sources found in pop culture, mindful based practices, academic texts, historical art works as well as my personal history. These sources are folded into my process and reveal themselves in the work in the form of lifted gestures, images, material to re-enact from and text.
