Constellations, 2018. size variable, black and white hand-cut archival print.


Constellations (Jessie Redmon Fauset) and Constellations (Alice B. Toklas and Gertrude Stein with Pepe and Basket).
Installation at Hales Gallery, London.

The series "Constellations" are collages that look at women who held mayor salons significantly impacting the culture and politics of their time. To reflect on the refraction of their stories, actions, and significance away from mainstream historic accounts and collective memories, the photographs are cut and rearranged through the scheme of a prismatic, mirrored drawing that I create for each of them. The work "Constellations" maps the recognizable pattern of presence and absence of these women reintroducing ways of looking that allow their recognition today.
