Doreen Garner’s work depicts the history of black bodies subject to scientific objectification, experimentation, humiliation and torture. She translates this documentation that she cannot unread into objects, videos, and performances that people cannot unsee. Unanesthetized surgeries and unwarranted medical experiments re-emerge in glass and silicone sculpture. These rubbery, transparent carcasses become objects of desire, glittered with wet silicon, latex, Swarovski crystals and hair.
Doreen Garner has exhibited her work at the Museum of Contemporary African Diasporan Arts, Brooklyn; Pioneer Works, Brooklyn; The National Museum of African American History and Culture, Washington, D.C., and more.
