Emerging Artist Residency Fellow
Abigail Lucien’s practice looks at ways cultural identities and inherited colonial structures transmit to the body and psyche. Part familiar, part foreign, Lucien’s works employ an architectural vernacular – challenging systems of assimilation through material and asking what it means for the body to empathize with a place. The works foreground their Haitian-American heritage by addressing notions of visibility, authenticity, and hybridity as they relate to a multicultural queer identity.
