Overhealing



Katherine Simóne Reynolds’ practice investigates emotional dialects and psychogeographies of Blackness within the “non”, and the importance of “anti-excellence”. Her work physicalizes emotions and experiences by constructing pieces that include portrait photography, video works, choreography, and sculpture. In the process of making subtle changes to her practice she has learned that creating an environment built on intention brings the most disarming feelings to the work. Utilizing Black embodiment and affect alongside her own personal narrative as a place of departure has made her question her own navigation of ownership, inclusion, and authenticity within a contemporary gaze. She draws inspiration from Black glamour while interrogating the notion of “authentic care”. Her practice generally deals in Blackness from her own perspective and she continuously searches for what it means to produce “Black Work”.

Reynolds has exhibited and performed work within many spaces and institutions including the Pulitzer Arts Foundation, Museum of Modern Art New York, The Luminary, and an upcoming solo exhibition at the Knockdown Center in Queens. She has exhibited in national and international group and solo shows, has spoken at The Contemporary Art Museum of Saint Louis and The Saint Louis Art Museum, and the Black Midwest Initiative Symposium at University of Minnesota. Alongside her visual art practice She has embarked on curatorial projects at The Luminary in Saint Louis, SculptureCenter, and an upcoming exhibition for The Stanley Museum of Art for 2024.
