split my sides 

04–09–22 to 07-16-22
split my sides featured works by Lola Ayisha Ogbara and Amina Ross as they consider the spatial relationship between place and interiority. 

Seemingly natural and stable, space is imagined, then produced to determine how, when, and where we move. Spatio-temporal hierarchies are built (and protected) to threaten, constrict, and erase. For those of us who are Black, queer, trans, and/or women, our experiences and struggles are intimately connected to the spaces in which we live, "Indeed, black matters are spatial matters."

Man’s Country

10–16–21 to 11-28-21
For their solo exhibition at Iceberg Projects, Ross used publicly available footage of Man’s Country’s interior to create a three dimensional animated model of the club’s lounge and performance space, placing themself within the architecture virtually.

Projected onto canted screens crafted from reclaimed lumber, and interacting with other sculptural and sonic elements, this representation of a specific place in time becomes the vehicle for expansive visual-spatial thinking about structures coming undone, manhood, personhood, and belonging.
