Like many during this time, I find myself adrift in my body. Isolation and self-confinement have redefined my role and place in society and the risk of potential illness has made my body feel unfamiliar. Internalizing racism surrounding the virus has alienated me even further from a body I’d grown to understand. Consequently, the face looking back in the mirror is a reminder of the past rather than being a reflection of my present. Foreign Body is a collection of self-portraits made to bridge the gap between who I was before COVID-19 reshaped the world and who I am becoming in this emerging new reality. The portraits become tools to identify how these events have transformed my sense of self and with each portrait the image looking back feels less foreign.
