Bound

2017 | 15 minute performance

 Bound is an endurance performance that references my past relationship with the daily ritual of chest binding. Through the lens of a transgender experience, this work contemplates how social and legal constructs projected onto dissenting bodies often require the constriction or manipulation of one’s physical form while navigating public space.

Bound was performed at Denniston Hill for Clifford Owens' Seminar, curated by Clifford Owens.
