THE EVANESCED

The Evanesced is an expression of the #SayHerName movement of mourning, awareness, and healing. In The Evanesced Series, 100+drawings, large-scale paintings, and a suite of performances, Hinkle brings attention to a painful subject: missing black womxn in America and the African diaspora, from history to the present day. Hinkle coined the term "un-portraits" in order to channel the presence of these elusive figures--drawn with handmade brushes and while she does improvisational dancing to blues, hip-hop, and Baltimore Club music--these works pivot between real and imagined narratives representing thousands of black women who have disappeared due to colonialism, human trafficking, homicides, and other forms of persistent erasure.

 

The Evanesced: Embodied Disappearance is a suite of performances that channels and evokes the presence of various womxn navigating historical and contemporary contexts. Each performance is a memorial of a particular aspect/challenge of erasure. Each performance is accompanied by a soundtrack of whispers, shuffles, and snippets of popular and underground music, adding another dimension to her emotional examination of a fraught part of the black femme experience.
