sorry we are close(d) – Q&A
March 10 @ 8:00 pm - 8:40 pm
Sorry we are close(d), a series of installations to be experienced from the street re-imagine a post-covid-19 afro futurity in the city exploring notions of consumption, closed art venues, and collective grief and healing. Levitating at the intersection of pain and love melissandre use the current context of a never coming ‘post-Covid 19’ and an ever awaited Afro revolution as starting points. They assemble embodied transitions felt in their flesh, navigating Other’s ways to be in public space, to (r)evolve as Black/queer, and to process exile (forced and voluntarily) in time of global pandemic. Questions of solidarity, afro-futurity, racial capitalism, aesthetics and documentation intersect.
