Jarrett and Taitano traveled to Oahu, Hawai’i, to talk story and collaborate with artist Jocelyn Kapumealani Ng in her community of Honolulu. Together they focused on physical transformation, incorporating cultural mythologies, embodiments, and projections that represent present-day Future Ancestors. By imagining and embodying these roles the artists claim their ancestral histories and simultaneously construct a contemporary conversation about survival and representation across borders, space, and time.
Art 25’s debut exhibition, Future Ancestors, opens this fall at Ori Gallery in Portland with additional dates forthcoming in Hawai’i in 2020. The exhibit at Ori Gallery will include large-scale photographs that document their interactions as well as audio recordings of their story.
