More about the artist:
Stacey Gillian Abe’s practice draws on autobiographical documentation to highlight complex situations experienced throughout the artist’s life. In her work, Abe attempts to review conventional depictions of herself as a black woman by drawing focus to the mind’s suppleness. The resulting works materialise into imaginary spaces that instigate a surreal mysticism, probing into unsettling narratives on the subjects of identity, gender, spirituality, and cultural mysticism, the past, and present.
