Homebody is a multi-layered installation that exists simultaneously in two locations: Flint, MI and Hartford, CT. The physical installation inhabits the artist’s home in Flint, MI as an examination of the feminization of poverty and it’s impact on the body politic through personal narrative.
Homebody is an act of restorative justice for healing a fragmented identity despite the structural violence on the body. Each room of the house tells a specific story about the artist’s position as a woman, single-mother, activist, artist, and survivor. The lower level of the home explores various trauma points in her generational family history of Flint, sexual assault, and a Flint Water Crisis survivor. The upper level examines the numerous identities the artist performs as a woman, mother, and artist.
