Consequence

Vulnerability, hybridity, and ritual inform my practice through their intimate, interconnected, and cyclical nature. These core elements guide my developing body of work, "Anticipatory|Después", which captures the complex layers of trauma, dying, and grief through a caregiver’s eyes. Each piece presents a looped scenario which is constantly evolving yet remaining stagnant in any sense of progress. The body is utilized as an active site of physical and emotional affliction of the dying, the caregiver, and at times the two concurrently. "Consequence" depicts fulfillment of my desire as a caregiver to make my environment reflect the brokenness of my mother's body and space to absorb my anguish without consequence. In making my experience vulnerable, I invite others to share their stories and offer insight for those close to carers and the bereaved to be more understanding of the challenges their loved ones face.
