In spirit of…

2014
A collaboration with Katherine Hubbard

A series of sculptures deriving inspiration from American craft objects known as “memory jugs,” “spirit jugs,” or “ugly jars.” Built from our subjective queer-feminist dispositions, these sculptures are sociological, institu­tional or cultural markers that are located in discrepancies of meaning making.
