to Bare the Rose || a visual memoir

to Bare the Rose ||| a visual memoir is a solo self-exploration of intimacy and trauma under love. This memoir recounts, redefines, and relearns truths of Black Queer Femme Love, and the ways violence retaliates against it. It is an interdisciplinary work encompassing movement, film, voice-overs, installation, and poetry to share the encounters of a lover who fails to love the self and others at the same time. This competition between self-love and self-lost manifests a need for truth seeking and vulnerability through memory. to Bare the Rose is itself a healing journey through acts of self-research, creating, and baring.
