The poem, the song, the picture, is only water drawn from the well of the people, and it should be given back to them in a cup of beauty so that they may drink - and in drinking understand themselves.
- Frederico Garcia Lorca
My work explores how personal acts are political. My black body is the vessel through which memories, histories and hegemonic rhetoric/s can be questioned, investigated and dismantled. The goal is for those who encounter the art to discover new thoughts, ideas or actions and see our world fully in its complexity .
Through blending media, music, movement and dialogue, I strive to make expressionistic, participatory artworks that tap at an audience's emotions first, before the intellect takes hold.
