The nests represents the reauthoring and decolonizing of black hair and bodies and challenging perceptions of otherness. The piece speaks about the alternative narritives surrounding beauty ideals by celebrating uniqueness and diversity. To stand up for oneself in a bold acceptance to authentically, or to love one’s self and others fiercely with tenderness, strength, and compassion is to claim sovereignty. For some, an act of resistance is simply to be and exist as themselves.

These works powerfully demonstrate the transformative effect of love as an equal act of resistance and demonstration of sovereignty.
