Winner of The Kitchen’s inaugural Emerging Artist Award Camae Ayewa/Moor Mother presents an exhibition and performances showcasing the creative process of her second solo album, Analog Fluids of Sonic Black Holes, and its instrumental accompaniment, Sublime Methods of Spiritual Machines, using soundscape installation, film, collage, and poetry. Investigating the idea that every shadow has a history, the artist speaks about ancestral temporality and the embodiment of what remains and lingers: what takes shape and holds in the shadows of the physical world. Organized by Tim Griffin and Lumi Tan.
