Who Is She?
Art series created in 2016
This series is a personal and communal narrative. I feel as though I have an inner self and an outer self. I am seen in a way that does not reflect how I see myself. Sometimes this outside perspective is caused by other's thoughts of how I should be, which often disregards who I am. The series was previously entitled I. Am. Dismantled. As I thought more about the project, I decided to change the title. I. Am. Dismantled seemed definitive. As if others' construction of myself is what I should accept. As if I should live as pieces put together by someone else. However, Who Is She? gives me the opportunity to create my own narrative and define myself.
I want to know how we see ourselves.
I showcased this work in a solo exhibition at The Manifest in Honolulu.
