more than monoliths x ebere agwuncha  
featured artist

follow along my more than monoliths exploration for the month of june. i will be posting experients, video, uncovering relevant archived subjects, books, and co-host a discussion with cameron gray later in june. full program description below:

“Local artist Cameron Gray will host conversations with featured artists, diving into the beauty of Black creators and their creations. Each discussion will identify and explore how the featured artist defines themselves and their practice—whether they imbue their creations with an understanding of Blackness from their discipline, images of the Black body, historical American aspects of Blackness, or the beauty of African influence.

This project aims to dispel the notion of Blackness as a single monolithic experience, just as art can’t be reduced to a single form, media, or subject.”

joyus to share this recent visual writing piece titled “fluid cusps” published in @platesjournal - plates issue 03: body of water.

~ this collection of images and visual stills are fluid cusps and note an intimate connection with water. one cusp remains physical while the other is an indirect visual representation of the Black body behind the image. the reflection is out of sync and aims to re-calibrate with each instance. ~
