DO or DIE: Affect, Ritual, Resistance
Aug 26-Oct 8, 2016 • Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art
DO or DIE: Affect, Ritual, Resistance serves as one artist’s action in opposition to the overwhelming threat of death and violence which plague Black existence. Through performance, painting, drawing and video Pecou reframes our view of Black mortality, incorporating references from Yoruba/ Ifa ritual to cultural retentions of hip-hop to the philosophy of Négritude, and through this shapes a story that seeks to affirm life via an understanding of the balance between life and death.
