Individuality, commonality, the emotional, the bodily, masculinity, femininity, permanence, erasure, oppression, freedom, isolation, connection, labour, identity, fiction, history, non-conformity, vulnerability and subject/object positions.
In Hyper Real, nine contemporary Black artists take on this range of multifaceted themes. Each grounds their creative expression in a particular subject. Yet they bring varying and even contradictory approaches to these subjects. Analyzing. Remixing. Reframing. Erasing. Reclaiming. At once meditative and inventive.
In each work, by looking at the specific, truths of the human condition are revealed.
You can see clearly every pixel, pore, brush stroke and coffee stain.
What do you find in the reflection?
“The function of art is to do more than tell it like it is ―it’s to imagine what is possible.”
― bell hooks
