Project Title: There is Only Language Between Us
Project Description: Le'Andra LeSeur explores healing within absence, gestural language, and repetitive actions. As a black queer woman, visual and sonic fragments become a transcending element that connects identities affected by regulated systems of oppression. LeSeur’s project There is Only Language Between Us, will host a community spoken-word and stream of consciousness writing workshop to compose a final sound piece around the question, "What do you need?" and other reflective prompts.
How to Participate: On April 17, 2021, join the artist for brief interviews outside of JCAL's building on Jamaica Ave and 161 St. The audio from each interview will be used in conjunction with other audible elements from Jamaica residents for a full sound installation set to open in June 2021! No RSVP required, walk-by's welcome.
As part of a collective and collaborative process, the recordings from the interviews will be the starting point for upcoming poetry workshops in May (Date TBD--Stay tuned!).
