Orating a decolonial memoir, sculptural forms accumulate sequentially around an audience structuring and choreographing a non violent protest. Navigating personal and national identity and media, pivoting through dynamic political and emotional positions from which to move and be moved, UNANNTHEMIC examines Adam Moore’s personal experiences of structural and systemic oppression and the complexities and tensions found in identity and multifaceted personhood specific to his own culture and time. Wading into personal, political and pop-cultural identity subjectivities, centring the enduring resilience demanded of and possessed by Black people and people of colour, UNANTHEMIC examines how to form healthy identities and self perceptions in the wake of white supremacy and its afterlives.
