Through a multi-faceted approach, Can I Get A Witness depicts Brooks’ childhood within a black, female-led home. The intimate display features medical scans memorialising the artist’s body before undergoing gender affirming surgery, alongside mixed media imagery grappling with the historical policing of black women, and empowerment as a subsequent tool of survival. Through these elements, the artist simultaneously weaves themes such as femininity, girlhood, queerness, family and the black church.
