Grief Baking, 2020.
Within this body of work Arianna Williamson will use her practice as guidance for healing from grief and loss of a matriarch in her life. Her process will include personal research on grieving in hopes of stitching meaningful ties to her current, human existence and altogether, stabilizing abstract responses to an abstract question: what does one do after the loss? “Grief Baking” is a digital video narrative which attempts to provide meaning to the question above. The documentation follows matrilineal life and loss through a learned combination of yeast, flour, salt, and water.
