Is an interesting artist to me because he wants to make work that “reframes cultures”. He thinks a lot about language and culture. It’s also difficult to untangle race and class here. Perhaps what makes me uneasy when I look at his work, is my outsider-ness? I can’t imagine how I would move my body the way the dancer does in his most recent video.
I have been thinking a lot about etiquettes and systems. I think what must make me uneasy is that I just don’t know the rules of what he is presenting (not the work itself). I have been trying how to do this myself, because a lot of my work comes from wanted to display a sort of misunderstanding of displaced culture.
