Henrique’snew BILLBOARD x FAMILY LINES poster commission ‘Registo II’ explores autonomyin Black Life and the overlaps between branding & identity.
The poster commission is part of FAMILY LINES; a multi-platform project by artist Alice Rekab in collaboration with community archive Éireann and I, commissioned by The Douglas Hyde Gallery, Dublin. Each stage of the project considers the importance of both platforming voices of colour and making specific spaces for self-representation and gathering, and each stage informs the next stage of the project.

Henrique J Paris is a transdisciplinary artist whose research observes ideas of personal space(s) in relation to colonialism and epistemicide - investigating how “desensitisation” performs through public forces while his works articulate private subjects, interested in sensitising quotidian allegories in counter-colonial grammar. Henrique’s approach is often site specific and take corporeality as a starting point. Using multi-media, installation and performance to discuss contemporary power dynamics, landscaping practices and the scale of Black imagination(s).
The FAMILY LINES project was commissioned by The Douglas Hyde and is supported by The Arts Council of Ireland / An Chomhairle Ealaíon through a Project Award. This Cypher BILLBOARD programme has been made possible with support from The Douglas Hyde Gallery and Culture Ireland.
