Lashun Costor's work takes a critical view of social, political, and cultural issues. She often references American history and explores the varying relationships between her ancestors and current events. Costor communicates her stories through sculptures, garments, and collages to critique issues in America; that directly juxtapose her identity as a black woman in America and as an immigrant. Thus far, the work has used experiences and voices of herself and others to create complex stories decrypting her ancestor's past. She shows how their past intertwines with our new reality—to create a unique artistic identity, allowing viewers to question history and cultural events.
