Fitzgeralds work blurs the line between sculpture, performance, and activism. Primarily working in live performance, she consistently uses found objects, food, and interpretive data in sculptural ways to enhance and document patriarchal issues. Heavily rooted in research, she explores historical regulatory measures and how they have shaped our expectations of womxn in American society.
