Cameron Granger: The Cartographer Tries to Map a Way to Heaven
Cameron Granger (b. Cleveland; lives and works in Columbus, OH), This Must Be the Place, 2018. Digital color video, with sound, 4 min., 32 sec. Courtesy of the artist.
Poignant meditations on Black history, community, and love
For his solo project at the CAC, Ohio-based artist and filmmaker Cameron Granger develops a new iteration of The Line (2021) for the CAC lobby that draws from his personal biography as a Black man raised by his mother and grandmother in Ohio. By juxtaposing live-action scenes, autobiographical texts, and found footage, Granger’s videos and installations weave stories that complicate accepted interpretations of the past and present. His works thus offer poignant meditations on Black history and culture, highlighting not only the systems of racial inequity that target and police Blackness, but the communities that continue to thrive, persist, and most importantly, demonstrate love.
The Cartographer Tries to Map a Way to Heaven is part of the 2022 FotoFocus Biennial.
Admission to exhibitions at the CAC are always free to all.
