The You Voice by Derrick Belcham
Exhibition running through Jan. 28
The You Voice, a nine-channel video installation by filmmaker Derrick Belcham, is a powerful work that explores the often-contradictory inner voice that both drives and stalls creativity and personal agency. Filmed in black and white, nine performers speak directly and candidly to the camera. Using texts drawn from journals and memories, the nine actresses perform characterizations of this voice, their own self-critic. By inviting an audience to engage with them in a physical space, their individual thoughts are universalized, transforming self-criticism into a practical process of work creation and exhibition. The You Voice is only running until January 28, so be sure to head to the Jersey City campus before it’s too late!
