Sewing My Herstory American Dream Flag (2019)

As part of the exhibition Scrapbook (or, Why Can’t We Live Together) July 12 – August 19, 2019, the performance featured myself sitting in a rocking chair and hand-sewing elements from my home and personal life — such as the the bra that Ajax was nursed from, the garter belt worn when marrying my husband and child’s father Jason Robert Bell, bedroom sheets and curtains, remnants from costumes from previous birthday party performances, and one of Ajax’s “fancy” shirts — onto the U.S. flag to create a personal Herstory American Dream Flag.
