About “ITAINTTHATDEEP”

In Pap Souleye Fall’s own words:

I make videos, sculptures, sounds, paintings and situations that consider feeling and body knowledge as technologies of escapism. I use methods found in cosplaying like world-building, speculative fiction and gameplay, as components that come together to create immersive settings.

 My work questions how systems of power condition reality and how black diasporas navigate, reimagine, and refigure them in order to adapt.  My practice necessitates improvisation, iteration, and malleable structures. I work with videos on monitors, cardboard, clothing and wood that are frequently salvaged or recycled. These materials allow me to create strategies and backdrops for joy and immersive experiences. I echo the virtual and the physical as a way to source the black imaginary.

 I am thinking about the ways we can be critical of representation within comics, media, and culture. Similar to the mythology of ‘vibranium’ as a mineral in the film Black Panther, the peanut is rooted in the post-slavery history of West Africa. The impact of the film in media/ culture through creating an opportunity for representation as a form of commerce. The film used the actual history of colonialism and fabricated a hidden African country as a metaphor for the potential and beauty of Africa.

Don’t miss Pap’s vivid abstract artistry as he seamlessly weaves various mediums into an immersive experience you won’t forget. Check out the behind-the-scenes photos below for a sneak peek of the upcoming event. We’re excited to see you there!
