“Music was an important tool for me in navigating an upbringing that valued suffering in silence. But how do I celebrate the music that shaped me after learning of the racism, sexism and violence perpetrated by the people who made the music? How do I separate my idols from their actions?
With BIG FAN I attempt to capture the impact music had on me, but also highlight the distance I felt from that culture. I decided to work with the idea of a band t-shirt that winks at an album, without centering it. So, instead of wearing a band t-shirt, I wear a t-shirt of another girl wearing the t-shirt.”
