BURN II: Body, Beauty, Representation & Girlhood


Pop-Up Exhibition at Akwaaba Gallery




Newark, NJ

BURN II installation catalyzes deeper conversations of troupes surrounding black women's bodies in the contexts of body, beauty, racialized gendered labor, and representation. The installation also centers on black girlhood as a heroic free spirit. The work explores the period from 1881 Washwomen Atlanta Strike "Mammy", Miss America, Pam Grier, Barbie, to Princess Meghan Markle.

Burn II activates the work with digital videos, selfies as self-portraits reappropriating the "Mammy" figure, mixed media collages, digital collages, the Barbie collection, products and cultural images.
