domestic labor, aka, because of the art… was a temporary site-specific work focused on Black women’s labor. Sited in my home, in Durham NC, the work was a living altar and tribute to Black women, whose work for social change was both recognized and unrecognized. The evolving installation, created over a two-year period, served as a library, healing, and art-making space for community organizing. The work debuted in April 2014 after I was served with a 30-day eviction notice because the art made the owner of the property “uncomfortable.”
