bitforms NYC presents LaJuné McMillian, ‘Embodied Metadata’
bitforms gallery NYC is pleased to present Embodied Metadata, a solo exhibition with New York-based artist LaJuné McMillian. Embodied Metadata features a body of work that represents a new expansion of the artist’s ongoing collaborative project, the Black Movement Library (BML). In McMillian's practice, motion capture technology provides a means of accessing liberated realities, using the body to interfere with and resist digital hegemonies. Stemming from the Black Movement Project (BMP), BML is a library for activists, performers, and artists to create diverse XR projects, a space to research how and why we move, and an archive of Black existence. McMillian's “Movement Portraits” ritualizes the archival process of data collection, inviting movement to be re-represented as a digital memory of life through motion.
LaJuné is a Multidisciplinary Artist, and Educator creating art that integrates performance, extended reality, and physical computing to question our current forms of communication. They are passionate about discovering, learning, manifesting, and stewarding spaces for liberated Black Realities and the Black Imagination. LaJune believes in making by diving into, navigating, critiquing, and breaking systems and technologies that uphold systemic injustices to decommodify our bodies, undo our indoctrination, and make room for different ways of being.
