Kalup Donte Linzy

Page 1


Conversations Wit De Churen is a video series that explores gender, sexuality, class, race, and human relationships. Through the contemporary device known as the telephone, characters communicate in a dialect that is primarily Black Ebonics seasoned with a southern accent. The use of the telephone places emphasis on the language that is the center of my work. The soundtracks are prerecorded, manipulated and performed through lip-syncing by the cast.
Conversations Wite De Churen II: All My Churen. 29min. Video. Color. Narrative
Kalup Donte Linzy just goes straight buck-wild with his funny as hell, one-man video installation that uses the easy to swallow positioning of the black inner-city working-class families as ghetto-fabulous. Yet the obvious critic of rigid-masculinities to which Linzy's cross-gendered performance is devoted enables a further critique of the sexual politics within the black community, which, much like the rest of America, treats the non-straight identity with a sense of taboo. While taking part in that exacting narrative, Linzy injects the elaborate plot-lines of a daytime soap(Conversations Wit De Churen II: All My Churen), the moral tone of an after-school special and the rauchiness of BET's Comic View. What the artist makes-clear is that all identity is a construction, as he, from character to character becomes his own montage.Leronn BrooksSeptember 1, 2003(excerpt from)The Landscape is Vast, The History as deep as Flesh and the Geography fresh for the Naming, But All in Together NowRush Arts Gallery, New York
