DESCRIPTION

Guyanese American multimedia artist Theresa Chromati will create an immersive, surreal world brought to life by videos, sound, sculpture, and a mural. In this installation, Chromati focuses on black women's energy a source of power that is often consumed without their consent and as a source that is often stretched until exhausted. Chromati molds bodacious legs as the soft sculpture foundation for a larger than life electrical outlet. Within this electrical outlet or "power source," is a montage of video works capturing encounters from her lived experiences and the way in which energy ebbs and flows.
