'Black Beauty' Photographic Series and 'Slender Tow' Sculptural Diptych in Heard Animals at Roots & Culture -- 20I7

Two-person exhibition with Kevin Stuart 

 

 

"Amina Ross has been leading a series of meditations and performances as a part of a growing body of work entitled Black Beauty. Named after the 1877 novel by Anna Sewell, Black Beauty creates connections between non-human animal expressions of aggression/resistance/resilience and black embodiment. Through the use of movement, personal historical narratives, video, meditation and sound, Black Beauty asserts that black folks and non-human animals are not merely connected through a shared plight but through a shared power, resilience and beauty that may be found in a great relinquishing."
