Kaneza Schaal and Christopher Myers
24 x 18 inches
Edition of 50
Shipwright is drawn from a series of images created by Schaal and Meyers for the performance GO FORTH. The performance is a reflection on the Egyptian Book of the Dead, in which a soul prepares itself for the afterlife through various rituals and preparations. In GO FORTH, the lead performer uses a cargo parachute as their transportation into another world. The poster itself addresses how Black lives cope with, think about, and relate to death as an ever-present specter.
