Ngasese (Revival Fire), 2018 - present
Over the past few years, my video practice has revolved around a project called Ngasese or Revival Fire. The project has a number of collaboraters including but not limited to Sean Davenport and Samuel Sincuba. It is based on Audre Lorde's methodology of biomythography and in her words is "the only way to tell my story".
Drawing inspiration from the aesthetic of exploitation cinema, the intention is to produce a radical experiment in alchemizing fragments of lived experience.
Using found, real time and abstract footage, the narrative reforms itself embalming past traumas while aiming to produce a stylized and imaginative (un)finished product.
