ASHLEY HOLMES, GOOD TO US
Click to enlarge Performance Oct 4, 2018 7:00pm - 9:00pm
Good To Us is a new live presentation by Ashley Holmes. This work has developed out of a written adaptation of Dope, a poem by American writer, music critic and poet, Amiri Baraka (previously known as LeRoi Jones and Imamu Amear Baraka). In the original work, Baraka takes on the persona of a Black preacher giving a sermon. In an erratic, humorous and satirical manner, the speaker convinces his audience to believe that it ‘musta been the devil” responsible for all the problems confronting Black people throughout history’. The sermon acts as a parody, and is referenced by Holmes as a way to consider how it is possible to confront voyeuristic cultures within ‘raciology’ – a discourse that assumes certain stereotypes, prejudices, images and identities. Good To Us, presented as a performance consisting of new moving-image works and an audio soundtrack, has been informed by Holmes’ recent research that attempts to dissect the complexities of what occurs when a collective ideology is challenged and/or put at risk.
