Jodi Bieber, Bophelo Tladinyane, aged 20, morningside, 2017. "I feel strong about the fact that I get to live the best of both worlds. I am treated differently because I am black and I live in a white environment. My original family comes from a village. Outsiders have issues with this. Someone asked me last year “Why do you live with white people?”. I am positive about my identity. The fact that I am different and I love being weird. This makes me feel strongly about peoples confusion around race and Identity. What about the 21st century family?” #i am contradiction.

Arhtur Jafa, The White Album, 2019. Single channel video projection, colour, sound. Photographer:Francesco Galli. Courtesy of La Biennale di Venezia. Jafa’s (b. 1960 USA, lives and works in Los Angeles) film won the Golden Lion for Best Participant in the International Exhibition ‘May You Live In Interesting Times’. Which in equal measure, is an essay, a poem and portraiture. Jafa uses appropriated and original footage to reflect upon issues of race. Just as the film critiques a moment fraught with violence, in tenderly portraying the artist’s friends and family, it also speaks to our capacity for love.
