Indisposable: Structures of Support After the ADA, Chapter 6

Working fluidly across sculpture, video, and performance, Kiyan Williams is attracted to quotidian, unconventional materials and methods that evoke the historical, political, and ecological forces that shape individual and collective bodies. Piecing Myself Back Together After The World Has Ended is a new video in a series of works which furthers the artist’s aesthetic and conceptual exploration of Blackness, ecology, and trans/gressive subjectivity; wherein bodies are in process, oscillate in legibility, and blur the boundaries between self and other forms of sentient life. The artist meditates on the body as an assemblage and entanglement of many forms of matter - plant life, fungi, earth, water, light - enduring, transforming, decaying, and regenerating amidst climate catastrophe and colonial violence.
