Esmaa Mohamoud: Untitled (No Fields) 2017
This wearable sculpture comments on the issues surrounding the gesture of taking a knee as a form of protest. While clearly referring to current events in the United States, the piece interrogates the longer history of exploitation and social control of specifically Black male bodies from the fields of slavery to the fields of athleticism. The resonance of the athletes’ gesture of protest is not limited to the African American context, but resonates with the equally violent and dehumanizing histories of objectification of Black bodies in Canada’s past and present.
