POSTCOLONIAL CAPERS

by LET ME FEEL YOUR FINGER FIRST
2014 / Video / color-b&w / sound / 1S / 2' 44




Blackface minstrelsy, the most popular and enduring American theatrical entertainment of the nineteenth century, has shaped the design and behaviour of animated characters, from the white gloves they wear to their wilful disobedience. Let Me Feel Your Finger First’s POSTCOLONIAL CAPERS reconfigures the problematical imagery of the colonial carnivalesque and considers the minstrel’s influence upon racial stereotyping, anthropomorphism and the strange dualistic nature of the animated organism.
