Kamari Carter presents Dark Blue, Almost Black, a multi-media exhibition that questions the presence of the body in relation to surveillance and the carceral state. The combination of sound, video, and wall work come together to highlight the experience of the Black body within the intersection of police violence, modern protest culture, and systems of identity in the United States. Using bodycam footage and live EMS and police radio streams against institutional texts related to the American flag and law enforcement, Dark Blue, Almost Black works to track the actions of the police state while asking who the carceral state serves to protect. Continuing on his minimalist work, Kamari Carter reflects on his experience as a Black male in America and forces the viewer to examine their own identity within systems of oppression. Dark Blue, Almost Black encourages deeper thought in one’s own voice in relation to those that are systematically silenced.
