I Am a Clay Artist. 2020. Duration 9:41.

A conceptual approach to inclusivity and autonomy,
"I Am a Clay Artist" depicts the manicured hands
of the artists as she rubs white stoneware
clay slip into her hands in a moisturizing-like manner.
In this performance, the artist uses erotic undertones
that become oddly satisfying with the merge of
mundane and egregious gestures to implicate
racial voyeurism in viewership.
