Domination, 2018


In Domination, I explore the power dynamics of gender. Through voice-over narration, I recite lines about the experience of being a young woman in public in my early 20s. Now entering my 30s, my words are accompanied by me crushing food, plants and inanimate objects. In a nonspecific site meant to visualize a space removed from reality, these items are destroyed, remade, and re-destroyed by my heels. Together, the words and visuals present a fantasy of power and agency that I desire.
