E. Jane is presenting solo exhibition Lavendra at New York’s American Medium, opening March 25 and running to May 7.
The Philadelphia-based artist and sound-designer, also known as Mhysa and one half of SCRAAATCH, explores softness, safety and cyberspace, and will be showing a series of sculptural collages that attempt to “claim a space and orient it towards the Black woman.”
Looking at the ‘Black diva’ of the 90s, the work creates a narrative around a brown dwarf who, with the help of Mhysa/the Black diva’s magic, becomes “more a planet, though still alone, without a parent body to orbit.”
See the American Medium website for details.**
