יהודיה | j e w e s s, 2017 - current
Jewess is an exploration in and out of context. It is a personal journey with my paternal grandmother who was fond of saying: "I"m not Jewish, I'm a Jewess." I am curious about the performative nature of being a Jewish woman. How do I inhabit time and space, both public and private, as a Jewish woman? How might reclaiming Jewish space in a gender binary way have an impact on how I move through that space and am received, viewed, considered? What meaning does "Jewess" as a naming give to my practice, if any? These questions and many others, guide this inquiry.
