Foundations, 2018

In Foundations I attach my hair to a cinder block and attempt to move it around the space only by pulling it with my hair. The attachment of the Black female body by her hair to an object that is a symbol that is foundational and institutional.  This manifestation of the struggle of this body in opposition to rigid institution. I struggled with this Cement block for a hour and during this spans of time the block moved a centimeter and a half.
