Denim Skin, 2021

In collaboration with Kancan Denim, Breon communicates the history of denim and the role denim played in the Civil Rights movement. She describes denim's implications after slavery in the U.S. through the use of an ordinary object we see every day-- a drawer detailed with denim fabrics around it. The piece illustrates how creativity and innovation so often come out of necessity. The installation recognizes and celebrates the ingenuity, style, and legacy of Black community organizers that continue to fight against systems of racism.

This completely up-cycled artwork is an interactive piece that allows the audience to scan a QR code on top of the drawer with their smartphones. After the user places their phone into the provided projector, they will view a clip of the artist narrating the historical and cultural significance of denim.
