Song of Songs 5:3
Encountering translation and transformation as physical processes, this piece revolves around the act of preparing oneself to receive their Beloved. Utilizing methods of screenprinting and natural fabric dyeing, I made a wearable garment whose hue I reclaim from its use in Germany’s Third Reich. Acknowledging that the names of dissidents were printed and distributed on pink paper, I consider myself part of that tradition of counter-culture and resistance. Advocating for queer pleasure as a site + sight of negotiation and resistance is the goal of this piece.
