Ricky Weaver CV

Ricky Weaver’s work is a cauldron of image based objects trafficking in the grammar of black feminist futurity. Her photographic practice prioritizes the ways an image materializes within a spatiotemporal collapse. Her application of scripture, hymn, and colloquial passages come together in acts of dark sousveillance to recall and activate portals to worlds that don’t require escape. She addresses the sonic, linguistic, and visual as a way to posture the body as a central mechanism for storing, downloading and transferring archives.

The women represented in her work conjure up the God within them to stop storms. The ontology of their practices command the wake to still. Their work is intended to elevate us into a meta conscious- ness based in a love/honor for the divinity of the black woman both corporally and etheric
