In The Belly of The Beast
Misra Walker - In The Belly of The Beast
A statement by the artist
Many horrors are hidden in the Bronx, from the Columbus monument to the skeleton frames of luxury condos and the gruesome NYPD. 1492 is the original franchise that spawned spinoffs, sequels, and trilogies to be relevant to current generations. This video includes an exploration of a custom foley horror soundscape.
Misra Walker – In The Belly of The Beast
Misra Walker is an interdisciplinary artist working in sculpture, installation, and video. In 1971 Marvin Gaye asked, “What’s going on?” Walker asks after Gaye, what IS going on? In order to understand our present material conditions, how do we analyze the past? By connecting the present with the past, she seeks to envision a possible future of liberation from capitalism, patriarchy, and white supremacy.
