XPACE: External Space: After Darkness, Manuela Morales

XPACE: External Space: After Darkness, Manuela Morales

Manuela Morales video, After Darkness, is currently on view at XPACE’s External Space gallery located in OCAD U Library Services: Learning Zone.

After Darkness, is a video that touches on the emotional aftermath of sexual violence that occurred between two family members.

Morales uses a two-channel video, juxtaposing family emails with landscape. Capturing the tranquility of the landscape with audio bytes of birds, footsteps, and wind blowing through grass with email correspondence between family members. The back and forth online communication reveals to the audience the intricacies and uncertainties faced by the family as they work together and offer support.

The text in After Darkness creates a nuanced and honest conversation about the effects of sexual assault on a personal and collective level….Morgan Sears William

On until April 4
