DAUGHTER OF THE CAGE presents power on a spectrum, represented by a gradient from black to white. These colors are not arbitrary. If power dynamics can be mapped through “grey areas,” the potential for binary inversion is always already possible from either end of the spectrum, from inside or outside of the cage. The imagery appropriated for the production of this series is drawn from silent films created by Oscar Micheaux in the 1920s.
