Dell M. Hamilton’s “Blues/Blank/Black incorporates key paragraphs from two of Toni Morrison’s most well known and widely taught novels: The Bluest Eye and Beloved. Through gesture, color repetition, & remix, “BluesBlankBlack” conflates fiction, folklore, live art and persona in order to interrogate trauma, perception and spectatorship. As such it is an ongoing investigation into the socially constructed and relentless nature of violence and is ultimately an exaggerated and performative construction that reckons with trauma and spectacle as a way of accounting for intergenerational memory, madness, loss, & erasure.
