Jade Blackstock

Saturday 19th June 2021

This is a new actionist work by Jade Blackstock.  

The performance will last for around 30 minutes.

Jade (B. 1993, Birmingham) is a UK-based, British Jamaican performance artist. Her work explores questions of the body and identity in relation to historical, cultural and personal events and experiences. Her practice is particularly anchored in exploring Afro-Caribbean customs, rituals and material, and attempts to unpack how prejudicially embedded histories impact the lives and current representations of people of colour. She seeks to highlight how the body, material and space have shared capabilities of holding, transferring and embodying collective pasts or memories, which bears importance in our understanding of selves and each other. Themes of race and Black identity, feminism, ownership, class and loss are present in her work.
