The story of water is a story of place, race, and power. Water shapes the conditions of places where we live, grow, and change. Power shapes the contours of place. Race is a metaphor for power.
Tag: In Conditions Of Fresh Water
In Conditions of Fresh Water is an art and oral history project that will chronicle the histories, power struggles and victories of historic Black places. Starting with the communities on the outskirts of Mebane, in North Carolina's Alamance County, and the incorporated town of White Hall, in Alabama's Lowndes County, Danielle Purifoy and Torkwase Dyson will interview and document—and then make art inspired by these places, their people, and their histories. They will work—and travel—in Studio South Zero, a 6'x8'x12' mobile solar powered artist workspace, built by Dyson with recycled materials.
