in_authentic_b the project is... a near feature-length multi-channel project that encompasses two locations, London and Ghana. The project’s goal is to explore the gulf of space between African and African-American identity, communication and social ritual within the international context of the artist’s biological and surrogate families. The 9 single channel video modules that comprise this work are designed to operate in a space together, playing simultaneously – integrating the two sites.
in_authentic_b the video... was shot on location in Ghana. It present a world in flux. We are placed intimately, face to face, with a game, a child and an abstraction beyond recognition at a glance. The subject of our vision has multiple layers. The subject is a football game and also a complex network of transmission and coded representation. The image is complete but, oddly, still needs processing. We do the assembly work - fail - succeed - question - and mend the poetic gaps in syntax.
