Entering The Beyond: Euphoria

This piece was created with a quote from Aliyyah Abdur-Rahman’s essay “The Black Ecstatic” in mind. In the essay, she posits that moments of Black joy “reckon with the ruinous now as the site of regenerative capacity and renewed political agency.” The piece is meant to express these moments of rupture in communal spaces across the diaspora, to depict a mode of Black life that is encoded and always inherently queer.
