Lachell Workman

Bridgeport, CT

Through constructing and deconstructing t-shirts and infrastructural materials into larger collages and sculptural works, Lachell Workman aims to subvert the cultural coding that exists within the visual language of ritualistic practices of mourning. Within her work, she utilizes asphalt as a surrogate body active within the fabric of the t-shirt to exist in place of a black body as a disruption to its over-consumption and as protector of the space for collective grief. During her residency, Workman aims to continue this work and utilize the community of Bemis to call upon specific challenges for making work and engaging within the broader community of the contemporary art world.
