Paradise Under Reconstruction in the Aesthetic of Funk


Xenobia Bailey

Xenobia Bailey creates brightly colored, tightly structured crocheted mandalas, tapestries, and poet “street wear,” combining them to form an installation that acts as a village like environment in which poets can perform. The installation consists of color transparencies laminated on neon plexiglass, lit from above with a black light.
