#ArtLitPhx: SOULS Installation Screening

The film, SOULS, is playing on a loop in Whiteman hall as part of the Artist Grants exhibition from 10:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. on July 3. The film screening is included with general admission.  

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 a late grand-mother whose resilience and strength was linear, within the fact that it not only allowed her granddaughter to love her blackness freely—but it allowed her to see it clearly. SOULS attaches the meaning of the stars to mortality. Through SOULS, we capture and travel through the loss and visceral connection of what it means to truly deteriorate.
