Ufuoma Essi @ Gasworks

6 October 2022 - 18 December 2022

Presentation of  a new film commission by Ufuoma Essi, who is informed by Black feminist epistemology; her films and moving image works examine history as an embodied experience.

My Living in Vain is a meditation on the continuing history and emancipatory potential of the Black church as a space of diasporic belonging, affirmation and community organising. Weaving together archival imagery, oral histories and shot footage, Essi’s film follows a tangled thread of personal and collective memories in order to interrogate the church’s contribution to a Black radical tradition.
