Event Description

Wednesday October 25th from 5:30 - 7:30 PM at the 50/50.

A crucial element of matters of duration is an exercise in collaborative destabilization and restructuring of images and narratives that populate dominate culture. As a part of this work, Craig will host a DIY mini-projector workshop culminating in a participatory screening of video image collages created by attendants.


Kemi Craig is a contemporary analogue artist living and working in the traditional territories of the Lekwungen and W̱SÁNEĆ peoples. A sixth-generation American of African ancestry raised in the Appalachian mountains of North Carolina, her work explores the contingencies of identity through raced and gendered bodies. Working through projections of Super 8 film, 16mm handmade animation and cellphone video, she interrogates agency from the positionality of looking as well as being looked at.

________________________________________

the fifty fifty arts collective is comprised of individuals living and working on unceded and occupied First Nations Territories, specifically the lands of the Songhees and Esquimalt Nations, as well as the W̱SÁNEĆ, Sc'ianew and T'Souke First Nations.

The programming space itself is situated on Songhees and Esquimalt Territory but engages with individuals and communities across Turtle Island.

As a collective we endeavour to deepen our own understandings of how we are implicated in the history and in the present ongoing project of settler colonialism. As members of the fifty fifty arts collective we continually responsibilize ourselves to the complex kind of space that is the fifty fifty which hosts and facillitates the dissemenation of the ideas and work of others.
