Presented in The Front Space
Organized by 2019 Black Box Curatorial Fellow Malachi Lily, Children of Sirius is a group exhibition of sculptures, installations, photography and ephemera produced with or by the seven multi-disciplinary artists featured in Lily’s Children of Sirius performance events, held at Vox Populi in early June 2019. Exploring concepts of black divinity, the unconscious, mythology and survival, Children of Sirius is an extension of Lily’s ongoing work with queer, trans and gender non-conforming black artists that create spaces for self-love and collective consciousness.
Children of Sirius features collaborative portraits of all seven artists, photographed by Nuna Ulises, for which Lily styled each artist in the spirit of their own chosen deity. Additionally, Children of Sirius includes wearable found-object sculptures by Jordan Deal, masks and poetry by Oro Ori, costume-work by Marcelline Mandeng, sculpture by Alex Farr, and a site-specific installation by Vitche-Boul Ra, Chloe Marie, and Sabrina Pantal.
