Brianna Lynn Hernández Baurichter is a Chicana artist, curator, and educator guided by socially engaged practices. Brianna’s current work focuses on the experience of providing end-of-life care and the subsequent grieving process. During our conversation Brianna shares the importance of the mind-body connection, she gets into neuroscience and the capacity for empathy and the physicality of the work and how it feeds into her creative practice.
1. Be more forgiving of yourself for not meeting those impossible standards every single time.
2. Ask yourself: What do I authentically want to communicate and what is the best way for others to receive that message?
If you don’t try it definitely won’t go anywhere.
3. During the creative process give your body permission to lead where things are going, and the reasons will become clear.
4. If it’s genuine part of your experience, anger is an acceptable emotion during the grieving process.
5. Try and create as many access points as possible because your viewers are living in the framework they are given, and don’t necessarily have the context to see your work from just one point of view.
