Dominique White, Can We Be Known Without Being Hunted, 2022

Based on her in-depth research, Dominique White addresses Blackness in terms of both its conceptual and material implications. The artist charges the material she uses, expanding its iconography as well as the medium of sculpture per se. She uses the powerful union of materials as a means to detach the motifs from their original function and redefine them as bodies charged with retribution, protest and resistance. Her sculptures describe the shipwrecks as attempts to undermine and destroy the hydrarchy. The vulnerability of her sculptures is uncompromising. As fragile entities, the sculptural bodies straddle states of preservation, decay and destruction Ghosts among ghosts. It is an active rejection of authority and erasure and a protest against an enduring system based on the dehumanisation and instability of being Black. It embodies the rejection of a future based on the violence of colonialism. Dominique White's sculptures are a play on memory and metamorphosis. In their unpredictable forms, the disappeared makes its entrance into the space in the Kunsthalle Münster as part of her first solo exhibition in a German institution.

In the guided tour, Jolanda Saal will give insights into Dominique White's artistic positions and invites visitors to engage with the works together.
