Michelle Levy, Still from In Search of Foreign Objects. 2022. Video. 05:49
Michelle Levy is an interdisciplinary artist and storyteller based in Brooklyn, NY. She uses performance, video, ritual, and text to investigate the liminal space between life and fiction where identity is constructed. Interested in discoveries made possible in real-life performative moments—Michelle employs a framework of “the search” and “research” to ask, how do we recognize wisdom or “truth” when we remain fragmented and alienated from our own histories? In Search for Foreign Objects touches on an intimate moment in the artist's life as she walks throughout New York City, reflecting on ancestry, biology, erasure, and time.
