Knee Bra

“Knee Bra” 2019, wax and fabric, performative object. 

“knee bra” are bras made from the cast of my knees. During the exhibition, I kneeled behind a display pedestal, with the knee bra resting on top, strapped on my body. I was playing with the childhood experience of putting my knees in their shirt to pretend I had enormous boobs. The aggressiveness of knees replacing the tenderness of breasts and the action of kneeling provided another layer to the piece.
