“Child. We are done for in the most remarkable ways.” (Brigit Pegeen Kelly, Dead Doe)
“The struggle of dying becoming the struggle of getting home.” (Sara Vaughan, The Ladies)
“There’s something wrong with you. Tell me, baby, are your troubles dead? You look back, you should be glad. Sit down. Let me kiss you.” (Darondo, Didn’t I)
“The species that persist through the struggle for survival are not in any way those that are composed of the fiercest individuals. They [meaning those that survive] are only those whose members observe the grandest rigor of solidarity.” (Ricard Flores Magon)
Since emerging from the woods of Virginia, Martine has been calling down ghosts and drawing perfomative ellipses of memory. She’s shown, danced, and curated in spaces, institutions, and backyards across North America and Europe, and with the likes of Jerri Allyn, Violeta Luna, taisha paggett, Jefferson Pinder, Arthur Jafa, and Keith Hennessy. Martine currently lives in Los Angeles, where she writes, teaches, and makes work about free fall and black folk dances of death. See more of her projects at annamartine.com.
