Grind explores the role of teeth in our lives—how these tiny tools serve as a microcosm of larger bodily and social experiences.
The exhibition aims to unpack how:
1) the body holds intuitive wisdom and brings physicality to emotional experience (exploring teeth as sources of pleasure, pain, anxiety, and identity)
2) the body is colonized by the intersections of white supremacy, a culture of disembodied violence, and health care operated in a capitalist system (exploring the socioeconomic implications and horrors of dentistry and the easy disposal/trivialization of these body parts)
