J. Slater

And my daughters' daughters shall inherit the earth, Digital Collage Photography, 2015

J. Slater (artist name Onyx) builds light installations as a means of public and communal gathering as well as a set to experiment with their performance works.

These performances include scrawled text, scripts, contemporary dance, costumes, character design and metaphors for the intersections of queerness and blackness. In their recent site specific performances Onyx brings ritualism from an Afro-diasporic and indigenous root and displays the experience on the streets of Chicago.
