Divine Feminine focuses on the re-imagining of black femininities and identities in contemporary culture. The production and consumption of imagery centred around black womxn has been narrow and contained. The angry black womxn trope is incredibly one-dimensional and fails to acknowledge the nuance of the systems in place that oppress said group. Through my work, I'm offering a multi-dimensional approach that highlights the opposing nature of the angry black womxn stereotype.
