Skin Le Fleur is an art installation and site of exchange that recontextualizes and reclaims the histories of the brown paper bag, and Hispano cuaba soap by displaying the bags as jewelry pendants and my intervention with the soaps as shield- like sculptures. This is based on my ongoing examination of these items which are found in private/domestic settings. Nonetheless, their combined racialized, colonial and social complexity reverberates in the customs and dynamics of collective space within a black diasporic subjectivity and imagination.
