BIG GIRL WANNA PLAY TOO Is a project that I completed at Elsewhere Museum in Greensboro, North Carolina for the Baltimore Goes Elsewhere 2017 exchange fellowship. BIG GIRL WANNA PLAY TOO is a modular, playable sculpture and wearable line that explores fatness, femininity, and the politics of self expression . It lives in the "Transormatorium" or wardrobe of elsewhere museum, and utilizes Elsewhere's vast collection of mid century upholstery fabrics as a primary medium. It also adds to the wardrobe in the form of a series of fat, plush wearable pieces that hopefully begin a tradition for future residents to create thoughtful wearable art/ couture for the collection, from the collection.
