“Dumb Belle” brings a lot of different interests of mine together. The barbell is a handmade object made from wood, paint, electrical lights, and metal drains. I also designed a costume for a performance, then documented it with photos that became a stop-motion video that was then displayed along with the object as an installation. I seem to not to be able to make anything that doesn’t have a bit of humor in it, and for this piece, mixed with a little self-mocking I find it easier to address weightier subjects like gender clichés as well as my own creative life, that involves practice, repetition, and endurance.
