Charisse Weston’s creative work emerges from deep material investigations of poetics and the autobiographical. She utilizes glass to conceptually embody both the everyday risk of anti-black violence and the precocity and malleability of blackness in the face of this violence. She deploys language and the autobiographical to examine the delicate intimacies and reticent poetics underlying black life. She reuses and re-articulates materials from past installations to formulate the next to represent meaning’s capacity to shatter.
