ABOUT THE ARTISTS
MERCY is a Brooklyn-based Black trans visual artist, model and advocate who isn’t here to be your teachable moment. MERCY is a founding member and artist in residence at Public Assistants, a mutual aid network, design lab and resistance hub where she focuses on the beauty of fat, femme body performance as liberation. MERCY is passionate about expanding narratives and understandings of what it means to be trans, moving towards re-idealizing the notion of what it means to have a body. MERCY is interested in the ways we map desire, paying particular attention to how hue, color, size and shape form our deepest longings.
