Love Me Tender
Love Me Tender investigates personal and historical feminine narratives of love and violence. Through beautifications, exhibitionism, implied self-harm, and compulsive consumption, the artist creates intimate interactions and draw battle lines between herself and the audience. In the spirit of vaudevillian traditions, burlesque, and sideshow, she democratically interfaces with the audience through gestures, eye contact, and actions.
