Dominique White weaves together the theories of Black Subjectivity, Afro-pessimism and Hydrarchy with the nautical myths of Black Diaspora into a term she defines as the Shipwreck(ed); a reflexive verb and state of being. Her sculptures demonstrate how Black life could extend beyond its own subjective limits and act as beacons or vessels of an ignored civilisation defined as the Stateless; a realm in which the past, present and future have converged into a Black Future. Recent and upcoming exhibitions include Ubuntu, a Lucid Dream at Palais de Tokyo, Paris (2021); the Mediterranea 19 Young Artists Biennale in San Marino (2021); Possédé·e·s at Montpellier Contemporain, Montpellier (2020); Fugitive of the State(less) at VEDA Firenze (2019); Abandon(ed) Vessel at KevinSpace, Vienna (2019); and Boundary + Gesture at Wysing Arts Centre, Cambridge (2019). White was awarded the Roger Pailhas Prize (FR) in 2019 in conjunction with her solo presentation with VEDA Firenze and has received awards from artangel (UK) and the Henry Moore Foundation (UK) in 2020. White was in residency at Sagrada Mercancía (CL) and at Triangle France (FR) in 2020.
