Black to Life
Black to life is an attempt to scratch the surface, beginning to redress the imbalanced narratives of black and brown bodies and migration in Britain through tender identifying, humanising and contextualising the nuanced lives otherwise invisible individuals. A more pertinent topic than ever, sadly. It emphasises a necessary thread of the absence and erasure of our stories throughout the ages, and the audacious claim to be abstract and artistic in our representation as opposed to always needing to tie in meticulous ‘acceptable’ threads to ensure a tapestry is woven that can paint a clear picture, lest the lens of history be too blurred or whitewashed. The restoration of these stories is crucial in acknowledging the depth of our combined contributions throughout history.
