“I claim queerness as a resistance to systems that weren’t made with me in mind”.
A series of sculptures and performances experimenting with woodcarving, empathy, and queer experience. Coming from the performance drag scene, Angel engages with the central theme of “wound” by making an ensemble of wearable wood adornments as a metaphor to explore the ongoing trauma of living in a society that disavows one’s authentic self if one is not conventional. The spatial wood sculptures, on the other hand, experiment with the theme of “resistance” of the wood, occupying spaces that are usually overlooked.
