Artist Statement

(un)becoming is the material evidence of my embodied trauma. It is the result of a two-year exploration of and coming to terms with trauma's effects on my body and its accompanying shame. The exhibition features a 1005 ft stuffed tubular form called "Worm" created from the destruction of all of the clothing in my closet - my armour, shields and skins. My research challenges conventional narrative driven methods in trauma-related art. It does not approach trauma through testimony, reveal precipitating events, nor expose injustice. Instead, it is a material disclosure. It contains and reveals secrets, questioning the boundaries between the two. It seeks to transform the audience's desire to "know" the details of another's trauma, its causes or perpetrators. Instead, the works in the exhibition offer possibilities of knowing trauma in a way that is resonant, embodied, intersubjective, and always in a state of (un)becoming.
