  • Image Captions:Image 1: “A particularly elaborate imba yokubikira, or kitchen house, stands locked up while its owners live in diaspora.” (These are the houses my friend ran into.) In 2016 Leigh was commissioned to create three imba yokubikira at the Studio Museum in Harlem. All three houses were built without entrances, to suggest simultaneous feelings of community and displacement within the Pan-African diaspora. I learned that Leigh often includes these heavily-researched references to the Pan-African diaspora in her work, as she uses motifs of cowrie shells and many of her larger-scale female vessels can be read to reference the face jug pottery made by enslaved African Americans in the South during the 19th century.
    • Image 2: Leigh’s large-scale abstractions of the Black female body are often sturdy, striking, and powerful, like this recent bronze commission titled “Brick House” (2019) that overlooks this road at the High Line Plinth in NYC
