Dear Shaded Viewers,
Steffani Jemison, Sensus Plenior – Satellite 10: is a proposition by Osei Bonsu currently at Jeu de Paume in Paris until January 21st. The work explores the relationship between lanuage, gest and singing in pantomime in black gospel in America. The film currently on exhibit shows the work of Susan Webb, ordained minister and head of the Ministry of Mime of Harlem. It is a mix of traditions of western African Dance as well as revolutionary mime of Marcel Marceau. Please click on the 3 films above so that the artist and curator can explain the work.
