Spinello Projects is pleased to present a solo exhibitions featuring the works of Michelle Lisa Polissaint, a solo debut. In Finding Home, Polissaint she showcases two photographic series, Dancing with Myself and If Home was Home, both of which come from her exploration of personhood.
In Finding Home, Polissaint intimately deals with creating her own space and self. The series Dancing with Myself, was produced after moving out of a strict, conservative home at the age of 19. The series exists in a point of confusion between adulthood on paper and true adulthood. Swaying within these spaces, Polissaint explores the self outside of nurturing environments. In the series, If Home was Home, Polissaint presents a suite of medium format images shot during her recent trips to Vieuxbourg d’Aquin, Haiti. Moving from understanding herself after leaving her parents’ home to addressing the relationship of the idyllic “home,” Polissaint continues to investigate her identity, as a child of the African diaspora, born to Haitian immigrants.
