belles lettres

Kate Okeson’s project, belles lettres, is a series of loosely bound writings from the artist/author to her self about the years before she gained agency. The work documents identity as a conversation between the visual self, its components, and plausible readings, and a self that is constructed by an oft un-chosen community. In these pieces, the artist contemplates the challenge, coexistence, and potential to dislodge the state of ‘becoming’ from the state of ‘being’.
