Pieced Apart

2019-2020 | flour, food scraps, recycled cotton sheets, fire

Pieced Apart casts the insecurity and vulnerability of female bodies/psyches in a hardened (by fire) sculpture made with recycled and scrap materials. It explores the corporeal and psychological effects of gender-specific traumas to women (especially those of a young age) when they are forced to starvation during the Great Famine from 1958 to 1961 in China which killed up to 45 million people mostly from rural regions.
