Inheritance is Privilege and Privilege is an Inheritance

 

White Boxes Series

Women’s hair styles and textiles each embody a balance of protection and adornment, forming our exquisite armour. Inheritance is Privilege and Privilege is an Inheritance is a series of soft sculptures which considers this tension through corporeal adornments. Each piece stitches together hair with particular elements from inherited matrilinear garments, interlacing braids with personal heirlooms, as altars to historical and imagined heritage.
