November 2 - December 3
A man called me Mamí today,
and another said, "looking good."
I like the feeling of my hair against the back of my elbows,
as I walk.
Like it reminds me that I am there--
a real person.
Held in Large Hands is a series of collaged objects that attempt to rationalize a (confused) female identity. Tiled surfaces, decorative woman-debris, and girlhood sweets are collided together in messy junctures that articulate new (splintered) spaces/terrains/bodies. Pierced skins, picked flowers, ceramic beads, makeup, dropping garland become a body that is not an actualized body -- a body in parts, a possible body, a malleable body, a body nonexistent.
