Artist Talk by Vanessa Dion Fletcher
Part of the Visiting Artist Lecture Series, co-presented by the DMG & Department of Arts, Culture & Media
Vanessa Dion Fletcher employs porcupine quills, Wampum belts, and menstrual blood to reveal the complexities of what defines a body physically and culturally. She links these ideas to personal experiences with language, fluency, and understanding. All of these themes are brought together in the context of her Potawatomi and Lenape ancestry, and her learning disability caused by a lack of short-term memory.
