House Suit

House Suit is a performance work that entangles commercial home construction, the forest and the white female body in the Hudson Valley. A wandering hybrid bears colonizer contributions to the landscape, drawing in themes of witnessing and surveillance, and questioning picturesque narratives. 

Materials include MDF trim, wood-look vinyl flooring, air conditioning pipes, electrical wire, cupboard door, plastic outlet cover.
