See Me Get Fat
Work has sprung from a deep investigation into her own subconscious as well and the consciousness connected to her position as a Jamaican-American woman. Inspired by Tiffany Lethabo King’s concept of Black Fungibility, Norman finds a power, not in side-stepping history, but in a surreal and beautiful overpowering of it.
The Exhibition title, and works like "I marched barefoot through your gardens so that I can devour your weeds" and "Woke up with a Mollusk Mind", borrow from the writings of Jamaican poet Safiya Sinclair, in which she masterfully untangles and complicates the notions of what is referred to as a civilized savage.
