EVENTS What's On

Davinia-Ann Robinson

The Future is a Collective Project



  • October 20 @ 6:30 pm - October 20 @ 8:00 pm

Gathering


Though visiting specific sights of personal importance, gathering earth and exploring Feminist Science Fiction and Black Feminist texts, people of colour are invited to explore their relationships to their body, connections to environments they inhabit and ways to repair from colonial structural violence’s which disenables bodies of colour to enact presencing.

 

Davinia-Ann’s art practice explores the politics of colonial emotions and how these are impressed onto Bodies of Colour who reside within colonial spaces. She is interested in the implications of these emotions and the sensations they create in-between the outer and inner layer of one’s skin and the experiences of living within the societal peripheries that these emotions enable as they distort readings and connections to one’s physical and metaphorical body, connections between individual bodies, and connections to one’s environment.

Davinia-Ann is currently completing her MFA Sculpture at Slade School of Fine Art and is a recipient of the Felix Slade Scholarship.

She has exhibited at the ICA, South London Gallery and was a supported artist at Deptford X Festival 2019. Her installation Earth Body. is currently in the exhibition “Freedom Is Outside The Skin ” at the Kunsthal 44Møen in Denmark and her sculpture Bod(y)ies That Weather is currently showing at Bold Tendencies. Davinia-Ann is also the founding member of Narration Group, an art collective of Women and Non-Binary people of colour, who collaborate on curatorial projects, focusing on understanding and unpicking the forms of discrimination which people of colour encounter, and ways to engage collectively and critically with these experiences.
