Currently based in Brooklyn, Coralys Carter weaves sculptural skins to be worn (and shed) exploring the concept of bodies rooted in spaces and places rooted in bodies. Their work is a personal inquiry into their ancestral convergences and confabulatory process using heritage craft as time travel to re/member self in past and present, while ensuring futurity for me/we. Coralys's creative practice is a stewardship of the Taborn archive, their paternal lineage of tricksters and shapeshifters passing through. Layering processes to create vessels for introspection, reflection, and transformation--Coralys is interested in embodiment, shapeshifting, and communal networks.
