Artist Statement 
My practice is exhibitionist: it is a combination of staged failures, confessions, and humiliation. In a corner I peel an apple, while a recorded voice screams "BABY IS IN THE CORNER". I fail at sinuously carving one continuous strip of skin, un-ruptured. I hone the fracture.

I am obsessed with the ways my traumas have come to define my desires. I write letters on resilience, on devotion and faith. Yes, I press my finger in my wounds but also the wounds of my mother, and her mother, and so on. I am trying to put my finger on their resilience, by looking at the gap from which it germinates– to make from the plenitude of the opening.

Through sculptural installation, I emphasize tensions between the sterile and the organic, the pristine and the sullied, the intimate and the public.
I displace elements of space and time, combining a precise collection of found object to personal ones.

Through performance, I confront the audience with my queer female desire: one that is abject and personal, torturous and real. I explore dynamics of power, playing with tropes of art history and theatrically reading poetry and epistolary writing in cathartic release.

I am convinced that it is through a practice of intentional self-abandon, radical tenderness, and vulnerability that we can address collective traumas, and achieve healing.
