Diamond Stingily (b. 1990 in Chicago) addresses the materiality and mythology of identity and social class. Using everyday found objects such as hair, doors, or chains, Stingily negotiates personal and collective memories by relating them to social and economic questions. Instead of working on representation of black communities in general, she examines childhood memories, which, fragmentarily, speak of the systemic racism and violence inscribed into US-American culture.
