During the performance the artist will shift through a series of movements, inspired by these seemingly decorative figures, while distributing an array of objects to the audience.

About

Originally performed in spring of 2014, Untitled (A Meditation on Blackamoors) investigates the artist’s relationship to the ornamental Blackamoors sculptures ubiquitous throughout Italy and draws parallels to Davis's own relationship with the “mammy" and other "darky" iconography from the US. During the performance the artist will shift through a series of movements, inspired by these seemingly decorative figures, while distributing an array of objects to the audience.

This performance was originally performed in May 2014 at the performance event Home Perm, started by Jeffrey Burdian and Marikke Dau. Home Perm, a quarterly night of performance art will be entering its 8th iteration this summer. To see past performances, please visit Home Perm’s YouTube Channel.
