Untitled 2006/2019 (Onus)
About the artwork
I did some work recently at the Kitchen, in New York, on the invitation of the artist Sable Elyse Smith, who put out a book of poetry called C.R.E.A.M. I had done a street art installation, and I did a performance essay reflecting on that piece of street art. It was on this semi legal graffiti wall, called the Wall of Fame, in the South Side of Chicago, and it read “I hate that C.R.E.A.M.” The wall has since been torn down and replaced by a Target!
I was reflecting on some of the sentiments that are in that song, but connecting it to my reflections on gentrification. At that time, as a young Marxist, I was looking for other ways to frame and understand the material that I was reading and interested in.
Each edition comes stamped with Wu-Tang logo emboss.
