Much of my creative work touches on themes of identity, gender, and race, which has inevitably lead me to consider and research representational practices throughout history and within my practice. Writing about my work and research has really helped me structure my projects and enabled me to have a certain transparency and responsibility for the productions I put out and how they are interpreted. In this section you will find essays and reflections I have made on theories I’ve contemplated, creations I’ve encountered, and of course my own practice. If you are looking for reflections on particular project I’ve done and do not see it below, please feel free to e-mail at annickmf@gmail.com, I will gladly share my experience and vision.
