She Remembers the Blood Behind Her Ears
Art in the Park Residency
Staten Island, NY
'She Remembers...' evokes the imagary of a scalped head. Created in the tradition of a traditional M'ikmaq headress, 'She' is a mediation on the horrors of commercialized scalping practices to control the Native populations. Inside her fabricated head, veins resemble the branches of a tree creating a memoriam for the loss of her hair.
