Motivated by recent news stories and my own experiences, Interim, Inquietude aims to further the dialogue surrounding sexual assault victims and the weight they carry with them long after they have been raped. It is a physical manifestation of obsessive thoughts, routine restlessness, and the constant yearning to be rid of that mental distress—a record of every day I have experienced an internal struggle with myself since the night of my assault.
Alicia JB McKenzie is a Filipino Canadian artist working with themes of sexuality, race, and gender within her own identity. She is currently in the third year of her BFA at the Alberta College of Art + Design, majoring in Drawing.
