Band, Bond, Bend, and Bind
Solo Exhibition: December 3, 2021 – February 25, 2022
Hawthorn Contemporary, Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA
Band, Bond, Bend, and Bind is a site-specific installation project created in response to the interior architecture of Hawthorn Contemporary. Grounded in feminist critique, the work acts as a material metaphor for the accretive strategies used to transmit, maintain, and reinforce nationalist ideology across time and space. A complex of beaded strands and cloth ties cordons off a bounded space, barring access to the center through the tensile arrangement of materials.

Sincere thanks to the Hawthorn Contemporary crew (Jason Yi, Josh Hintz, and support team) for their support both on and off site; and to Théo Bignon, Amélie Bélanger, and Gisèle Suzor-Morin for their assistance in the studio.
