Where

The Where series, alternatively titled Experimental Investigations Towards the Reconstitution of an Erased Global History, explores an unrecorded ancestry while investigating the relationship between sculpture, performance, and photography. Foods grown in, native to, or caught in Northwest and Central Africa, the Southeastern United States, Central and South America, Ireland, and Pennsylvania were redistributed in local supermarkets to reflect an imagined ancestral narrative. The project arose from considerations of the role of global commerce in my ancestor’s migrations, and an interest in the role of food as the primary means by which people come to embody land.
