Earth, Body.2019 - 2020
Earth, Body. explores personal everyday moments of questioned presence for Bodies of Colour whom reside within colonial spaces. The work examines cultural structures which inform ownership of one’s presence, where one’s body is allowed to reside and the blurred line of consent which informs which bodies are able to touch, encroach, question and hold power over other bodies through social, cultural and political impressions. The work explores this by dissecting forms of violent gestures, through movement, displacement and language, and is concerned with how these violent gestures impress into and distort the presence of Bodies of Colour.
