 I’ M P U R E deeds 

Video, 6:44, 2019

Themes:  Sustainable practices, The economy and labor, Responsibility, Interconnectivity

“A video of the performance I’ M P U R E deeds considers cleanliness, erasure, purity and the impossibility of it. The work reflects on how Whiteness and cleanliness are performed and asks us to consider the violence that happens when Whiteness is conflated with purity.”

(From an essay by Angela U. Drakeford)
