What's Her Face


Simone Leigh

What’s Her Face is an installation comprised of sculpture and video that uses gestures, ceremony and rituals associated with Simone Leigh’s biography as a conceptual point of departure. This work will include hand-made ceramic, wood and glass-beaded works, informed by Leigh’s ongoing visual research on contemporary art and vernacular objects in the Global South, as well as found objects repurposed for display. What’s Her Face builds upon a group of works developed in previous site-specific installations, performances and actions.
