HABIT & HOME
Habit & Home reflects on automatic and practiced numbness and the cyclical, unceremonious rhythms of coping. With dulled senses and heightened emotion, the state of intoxication becomes a space for rapture, mislead or misread sexuality, comfort, and depression. Employing the visual nomenclature of dive bars and visual indicators of the domestic, this installation is a charged and dreamy environment that is intriguing, sad, seductive, and honest. It is a fluid space, a concoction of ritual, facades, attempts, and realities. Accompanying the installation, there will be a series of video clips that will be released during and after the run of the show.
100% of the proceeds from this exhibition will go to the Black Lives Matter movement.
My studio practice pokes at the hierarchies of social expectations. More specifically, I’m most interested in the ideas of expectations versus reality. The romantic notions of what 'I' or 'something' should be and what it actually is. In the most fundamental way, this is what my work is about.
