Sedrick Chisom: Twenty Thousand Years of Fire and Snow

July 15, 2021 - August 20, 2021

Sedrick Chisom’s first U.K. solo show, “Twenty Thousand Years of Fire and Snow” will be on view at Pilar Corrias’s Eastcastle Street gallery through August 21. A collection of drawings and paintings portraying a speculative future in post-apocalyptic America, Chisom’s works tell an eerie tale where people of color have chosen to leave Earth. Remaining landslide, however, are two opposing groups of white people (depicted with imagery reminiscent fo American Civil War soldiers) who are left to grapple with the situation they have created for themselves. Following Afrofuturist traditions, Chisom’s narrative is one of science-fiction, but one that incorporating ideas informed by history. On view, Chisom’s eerie images depict the sky burning red around the unfamiliar terrain, which often includes appearances by recognizable characters like Medusa or the Angel Mornoni.
