    Artist Series: The Spacesuits

    Interview By Lissa Alicia

    "I think Afrofuturism is an outlet, a very important outlet, for marginalized people in America. It says, "It's okay that you feel like you don't belong here, because the truth is that you're from outer space." It opens up not just a whole new world, but a whole new universe. On an individual level, I think it gives people of color a place to put their anger, their sadness and their need for a sense of belonging. Honestly, as with all my projects, The Spacesuits came from a very personal need – namely, the need to carve out a piece of Earth for myself where I could feel okay about being an alien. And I mean 'being an alien' in the sense of being a black queer female immigrant from a third world country who grew up in-between cultures and in-between homes. That's permanent resident alien status. I don't ever expect to feel like I fully belong anywhere. So instead I focus on creating temporary refuges. Temporary spaces, temporary communities. Residing always in the bizarre." - Anaïs Duplan
