The Lineage of a Kneegrow Series is a body of work that interrogates the historical and contemporary labels that have been assigned to the black body. Riffing off of the homonym Negro/Knee Grow Hinkle creates an elusive identity that blurs fact and fiction allowing the viewer to enter into a a space in which the dichotomies between self-hood vs. collective history and the negotiation between survival and becoming through language take form. Hinkle utilizes performance, educational tools and office supplies to create intertextual dialogues concerning blackness. She also uses sources from: Blaxxploitation film, overheard conversations, racial slurs, rap music, pedigree charts, phrenology charts, religious texts, letters of complaint and overheard conversations.
