When I was around 5 years old, the local newsagent decided he couldn’t pronounce my name so he called me Tracy. Diana Ross Shaped is a performance that takes its starting point from the 1975 film Mahogany, starring Diana Ross as Tracy Chambers. The work is about who and what influences our identity, our connection to everything, and a looping sense of time.
