Brooke Schneider
South Carolina

Artist Statement Submitted 2020

Brooke Schneider is an interdisciplinary artist based in Greenville, South Carolina. Schneider’s work is informed by the geography of South Carolina and considers how land operates as a storehouse for memory. Her work contemplates how collective and cultural memory influences family, tradition, labor, and loss. Working with teabag paper and materials associated with the American South, Schneider explores how the extension of labor and acts of trauma are dispersed through objects and their exchanges. Schneider constructs personal, familial, and cultural narratives in discourse with the South Carolina landscape and culturally charged materials.
