Additional Information

Accompanying Rhea Dillon’s solo Art Now exhibition, An Alterable Terrain, this exhibition catalogue showcases Dillon’s poetically insightful work. It features Dillon’s poetry, alongside new writings and reprinted extracts by her and other contributors, and illustrations of the exhibition and individual works.

The exhibition brings together Dillon’s new and existing sculptures as a conceptual fragmentation of a Black woman’s body. It examines material histories, theories of minimalism and abstraction, and Black feminist epistemologies to evoke elements of an amorphous body, including the eyes, mouth, soul and hands. Viewed together, these disparate elements underline the foundational role Black women’s physical, reproductive, and intellectual labour has played in the history of the British Empire.

This powerful new volume illuminates the links between historical sites of dispossession and contemporaneous sites of exploitation and overwork. It underlines how structures of power – including colonialism, racial capitalism, and patriarchy – have an enduring presence in the production of Caribbean and British identities. A poetic assemblage of responses to colonialism, patriarchy, and Black female labour.

Created in close collaboration with the artist, the book also features contributions from Patricia Noxolo, Barbara Ferland, Zoé Samudzi, Françoise Vergès, Vanessa Onwuemezi, Katherine McKittrick, Martine Syms, and Daniella Rose King.

Rhea Dillon is an artist, writer and poet based in London. Recent exhibitions include We looked for eyes creased with concern, but saw only veils at Sweetwater, Berlin (2023); and The Sombre Majesty (or, on being the pronounced dead) at Soft Opening, London (2022). She was an artist in residence at Triangle-Astérides, Marseille and previously at V.O. Curations, London.

Professor Patricia Noxolo is a geographer whose research brings together the study of international culture and in/security, using postcolonial, discursive and literary approaches to explore the spatialities of a range of Caribbean and British cultural practices. She was awarded the 2021 Royal Geographical Society (RGS) Murchison Award and is a Fellow of the Academy of Social Sciences.

Barbara Ferland is a poet. Born in Spanish Town, Jamaica in 1919, she wrote the music for the first all-Jamaican pantomime, Busha Bluebeard (1949), and was a contributor to the BBC's Caribbean Voices in Jamaica in the 1950s, before settling in Britain in 1960.

Zoé Samudzi is the Charles E. Scheidt Visiting Assistant Professor of Genocide Studies and Genocide Prevention at the Strassler Center for Holocaust and Genocide Studies at Clark University, Massachusetts. She is an associate editor with Parapraxis Magazine, and a writer and a critic.

Françoise Vergès is a decolonial feminist theorist, anti-racist and anti-imperial activist, and an independent curator.

Vanessa Onwuemezi is a writer living in London. She is the winner of The White Review Short Story Prize 2019 and her work has appeared in literary and art magazines, including Granta, Frieze and Prototype.

Katherine McKittrick is Professor of Gender Studies and Canada Research Chair in Black Studies at Queen's University in Kingston, Canada.

Martine Syms is an artist who has earned wide recognition for a practice combining conceptual grit, humour and social commentary. She has exhibited extensively including solo exhibitions at the Museum of Modern Art, the Art Institute of Chicago and Tate Modern.
