Installation Video

Time-lapse showing the wheatpaste mural installation of A Moment Of Rest While Convincing Monsters That I Am Human by Antoine Williams with the assistance of SECCA team. About his work, Antoine says: "A number of creation myths involve ‘world-bearing’ entities that carry, or embrace, the earth acting as a protector or stabilizing force. Shesha (Hindu), The World Turtle (Hindu), Bahamut (Arabic) and Jormungandr from norse mythology are a few examples. I am creating a series of drawings reflecting the precarious position of many essential workers during the COVID-19 pandemic who, much like creation myth deities, are a stabilizing force in our economy yet bear the brunt of that same economic system. These drawings depict figures that are an amalgamation of hands, clothing and feet, symbols of work, generosity, and stability, but also ones of oppression, subversion and silencing."
