Findlater’s moving images relate her embodied experience, showing close-cropped perspectives of her body within the frame—nails being painted, hair braided and her face or body engaged with “curative, restorative touch,” as we hear described by Black Feminist theorist Hortense Spillers on the soundtrack. We view these actions while thinking about the places in which they take place; this work was recorded in the artist’s bedroom. Rituals brings the viewer into an environment of immersive intimacy, exploring the complex interplay between independence and interdependence.
