The Widow Series is an ongoing project comprised of videos, performances, and photographs that feature the Widow character as an enigmatic, lone figure wearing a black dress, heels, and an unfurling belt. In each piece the character finds herself driven into a particular environment by forces beyond her control. The historical, symbolic, and emotional energies of the locations she inhabits combine with sound and movement to form a shifting tableaux of imagery – each artwork offering a distinctive view on a set of themes and abstractions ranging from female identity to grief and transcendence.
