SOULS is a visual exhibition, photographic art & and film installation that captures the totality of mortality, blackness and Afro-futurism.
Through the lens of a child, we attach the isolation of death and mortality, combined with an exploration of space and afro-futurism. Attached within the exploration of mortality, we search the African-Diaspora for clues of what goes on within the "beyond". This film and installation was inspired by the passing of my late grand-mother. Her resilience and strength was linear, within the fact that it not only allowed me to love my blackness freely - but it allowed me to see it clearly. Mortality it is a gift AND the afterlife - is a celebration.
Souls attaches the meaning of the stars to mortality. The death of a star forms something else, a phenomena...The Nova. Through Souls, we capture and travel through loss and the visceral connection of what it means to truly, deteriorate.
