Fine Arts faculty Le’Andra LeSeur’s solo exhibition “There are other hues of blue” is currently on view at Marlborough from May 5 ⁠— July 1, 2022.
In the 6-channel video installation the “artist utilizes her voice and body as a vessel to tap into a collective consciousness, framed through free, Black thought. The result manifests a meditative interrogation of liberation that can be found beyond pain.
Six suspended screens display blue fields of color pulled from a Facebook Live recording by 21-year-old Dreasjon Reed, who was killed by police on May 7, 2020. After Reed is shot, his camera falls and faces upwards towards the sun, causing an iridescent scattering of light, unintentionally displaying various hues of blue. The visuals synthesize this occurrence by drastically slowing, abstracting, and distorting the moment when the sun hits the lens, evoking a sense of stillness forcing the viewer to reckon with the power that transcendence has on our understanding of self.”
