Michèle Pearson Clarke

Michèle Pearson Clarke’s artworks hold space for experiences of grief, longing and failure among people from African descent and queer individuals. Her portraits are the result of precise mises en scène that reappropriate, often with humour and self-deprecation, stereotypes aimed at Black and queer people. The artist builds a repertoire of body language and facial expressions that convert stigmas into joyful, powerful images, fully embodied by her models and collaborators.

Exhibition produced in partnership with Galerie B-312.
