This work is a continuation of my thesis exhibition ‘ReCall ReVive’ that consists of found object sculptures and assemblage. While using objects such as hair bobbles, hair barrettes, string, tools, nails, screws, etc., I examine issues of labor specifically pertaining to Black women and young Black girls. With found Black cultural objects in cohesion with found objects pertaining to labor, I often daydream about a world where play and rest, which are huge aspects of childhood, can be placed into our lives as adults in a capitalistic society that overexerts our bodies and the tension that this issue holds. With these works, I also analyze everyday objects relating to Black households and how simple items can hold a conglomerate of meaning relating to the past, present, and future.
