SHE LAUGHS, AN ECHO
OF HER MOTHER

2018
This project is about you and your mother, about whoever that may be, blood or not, and about appreciating them. This project is about caring for femmes and the emotional labor they do, the love they give that is taken for granted, the care they give that goes unnoticed. Femmes are not vessels to be filled, they are not anchors and they are not therapists.

This work moves outwards from me to you, from one person to another. This work began in matrilineality but didn’t stop there. Give back to your mother, give back to a femme person. Listen to their whispers, listen to their secrets in the dark or in the blinding light, write them a letter when you have a minute alone.
