 alyssa (b. 1996)

My work examines embodiment and performance of intersecting identities using weaving & fiber arts & integrated printmaking techniques—as process and metaphor—to explore the concept of bodies rooted in spaces and places rooted in bodies—inherited cultural memory—joy, resilience, and means of self-preservation, life cycles, ancestral strength and knowledge. Through performance and documentation, I investigate the process of becoming, unbecoming, and rebecoming. I am in conversation with my, and other’s, identity and the natural world around me.
