Artist Statement

Through video, performance, photography, and text, I explore the complexities and confusions
that surround the act of love and the dynamics of vulnerability. What are the areas where our
preconceived notions fall short. How do we hold on to beauty amidst fear and failure? My work
approaches motherhood from within this framework as I process the ramifications of the
transformation into “mother” and the simultaneous shift in her relationship to time and mortality.
Ultimately, the work explores the concurrent existence of bliss and fear, birth/life and death,
resistance and acquiescence.
