Dominique White’s artistic practice weaves together the theories of Blaccelerationism with the nautical myths of Black Diaspora and the afrofuturist narratives constructed by Detroit techno. Consisting of natural materials—oftentimes manipulated by wind, sea, and the artist herself—her sculptural installations investigate the Shipwrecked (redefined as a reflexive verb as well as a state of being) and the disruption of linear time, while delicately balancing the states of preservation, decay and renewal.

Dominique White (b. 1993, UK) lives and works in London. Solo exhibitions and presentations include Fugitive of State(less), VEDA (Florence, 2019) and Art-O-Rama (Marseille, 2019). Her works have been presented in group exhibitions such as Flood-tide at Love Unlimited (Glasgow, 2018); The Share of Opulence; Doubled; Fractional at Sophie Tappeiner (Vienna, 2018); °c at (London, 2018); The Conch (April) at South London Gallery (London, 2018); and Signs | Beacons at Caustic Coastal (Manchester, 2018). White was artist-in-residence at Curva Blu in June and July 2019 and also in residence with the network Formerly Called at Wysing Arts Centre (UK) from March to September of 2018.
