Strange Fruit; Split Seed

BY JEAN-MARC SUPERVILLE SOVAK
@ VOL 1 ON MAR 31, 2015

Jean-Marc Superville Sovak presents a series of drawing based on lynching photographs:

"I began my drawing series based on James Allen’s “Without Sanctuary: Photographs and Postcards of Lynching in America” to reject the roles I found myself in when viewing the images; at first, vicariously the victim, then, a spectator guilty because of my ineffectual presence. In the act of just looking, I also became a witness to the exhibition of a human being's destruction, no different than any other spectator. Like the other participant's affirmation and justification of the inhuman act that had occurred, I also became accomplice to the crime.

I asked myself: How could I avoid the irreversible effects of the photograph? How could I conversely act upon the photograph?"
