Becci Davis was born on a military installation in Georgia named after General Henry L. Benning of the Confederate States Army. Her birth initiated her family’s first generation after the Civil Rights Act and its fifth generation post-Emancipation. Becci is a Rhode Island-based interdisciplinary artist and educator who finds inspiration in exploring natural and cultural landscapes, as well as, her experiences as a daughter, mother, American, and Southern born and raised, Black woman. Working across disciplines, Becci collects still and moving images, documents, sound and oral narratives. Using this collection of evidence combined with her own interpretation and response, she constructs what Pierre Nora would call realms of memory, devices for remembering people, places, and events. Using these devices along with physically occupying space with her body, she creates a new history and personal geography. Becci was the recipient of the St. Botolph Club Foundation Emerging Artist Award in Visual Art, the Rhode Island State Council on the Arts Fellowship in New Genres, and the RISD Museum Artist Fellowship.
