Loveless is a multimedia piece about healing trauma through boxing. Inspired by Duchamp’s art boxes and boxing gear, I played with the base material of boxing gloves -foam- covering it with soft textile and creating objects (heart chain and suitcase) that are pretty to look at but are useless. I drew connections with womanhood and boxing as being raised as one hurt the same as taking off hand wraps after training. I felt loveless once too.
