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 gendered 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.
