Motivated by or symbolic of primaeval and powerful natural forces or passions


What does it mean to inhabit a Black body in this realm? From joy and love to resilience and power, the Black lived experience is characterised by the simplicities of being human, and the complexities of existing in a society where anti-Black racism remains prevalent. Through a multimedia approach, Elemental aims to juxtapose these moments and present a space to contemplate the nuanced dualities of Black identity.

elemental was developed as part of the 2022 Steps Public Art CreateSpace Residency.


This project is presented as part of the program les courants by Ada X, produced in collaboration with the Maison de la Culture de Rivière-des-Prairies and MAPP Montréal, and receives financial support from the Ministère de la Culture et des Communications and the City of Montréal as part of the Entente sur le développement culturel de Montréal.
