After Kempf Installation Image

2012

After Kempf  is an exploration into lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender hate crimes. Using mixed media, including ceramic, concrete, and found materials, I transform everyday objects that have been used as weapons in specific hate crime cases. As I twist and contort wet clay, the weapons become a stand in for the bodies intwined in an act of violent urgency and physical intimacy. The disturbance of everyday objects calls into question the very system in which they exist.
