Guns and Poses (Remix)

1995-97, 12 min, color, sound

X-PRZ constructs a powerful collage of rap music, authorial text, and iconic visuals to confront the politics of race in the context of the American media. Writes Tony Cokes: "Slick and easily legible Pop surface: deploying the Black male media projection as central model, heroic figure, and exploited buffoon of fear-mongers in the media. Moving images: clips from Gangsta rap videos, LA Rebellion 1992, the 'Jam' Michael Jackson/Michael Jordon video and other film sources. Sound: Adapted from the 'Murder was the Case' soundtrack with works by Dr. Dre, Ice Cube, and Snoop Doggy Dog." This single-channel tape is a remix of the video component of the installation NT YT FREE STYLES.
