The Object of My Gaze (an introduction)



"I have decided that the time for you to hear my story is now.

No more waiting

no more fear

no more thinking that time will correct the past,

without my voice.


I am concerned for the new voices silenced by this- master -narrative.


I am eager

to write it, 

speak it, 

document it,

show it;

and defy history,

in order, for you my child,

my mother and my friend, to 

breathe in this passing moment that is my life"

Taken from the work 'My History is in her[e] from the series The Object of My Gaze (2015-2017)
