In my loneliness your memories are my companion, what am I to do, something is happening, single-channel video, grandmother’s headscarves, ceramic dog statue with drawings from early childhood. Part of 2021 MFA Thesis Exhibition, “close alternative,” at Bard College. 

The text that is read over the video is a series of letters to a fugitive to whom the artist is distantly but personally connected through her mother. The letters, which are part of a book-length manuscript, aim to blur the line between fantasy and reality, explore and unravel complex intimacies and lineages, and chart the emotional terrain of living in a racialized body.
