Exhibition information

In his videos and installations produced since the mid–1980s, and his work with the collective X-PRZ, Tony Cokes engages in cogent investigations of identity and opposition. His works question the construction of subjectivities (personal, cultural and historical), and how race, gender and class are perceived through what he terms the “representational regimes of image and sound,” as perpetuated by Hollywood, the media and popular culture. By re-framing and repositioning appropriated text, archival footage, and audio, Cokes brings renewed attention to often forgotten information and its relevance for our contemporary moment.

 

This recent work from Tony Cokes’ Evil Series was made during the current pandemic and in the wake of recent episodes of police brutality and systemic violence against Black people across the United States. The video animates a conversation between Tina Campt, Saidiya Hartman, and John Akomfrah, together with a soundtrack by UK producer and DJ Caspa. Employing color, font size and repetition as language, the piece concludes with the words “We have witnessed enough Black death for a lifetime…”.
