ATLANTIC CRUISES


featuring Ebun Sodipo and Chloe Filani





arebyte Gallery presents ATLANTIC CRUISES, an evening of live performances by artists and performers Ebun Sodipo and Chloe Filani.

ATLANTIC CRUISES is a polyphonic audio-visual conversation expanding speculative and critical narratives on imagining the otherwise. Framed by moving image and sound, the two artists will speculate on the connections between imagination, the Atlantic, and Black trans-feminine existence, inviting the audience into a scripted conversation.

Ebun Sodipo makes work for those who will come after: the black trans people of the future. Her interdisciplinary practice narrates her construction of a black trans-feminine self after slavery and colonialism. Chloe Filani’s work consists of going on artistic journeys, be it solo or in collaboration with play, movement, expression of her voice and using her body to communicate the artistic self. Through a process of fragmentation, collage, and fabulation, both Sodipo and Filani devise softer, other ways of envisioning and discoursing about the body, desire, archives, and the past.
