    Double Negative, 1990

    4 dye diffusion color Polaroid prints, 3 plastic plaquesOverall: 89.9 x 20 inches (228.3 x 50.8 cm)"In Double Negative, a stacked vertical panel of four Polaroid photographs consisting of a single image of a braided hairpiece formed into a circle, there is an ungiving solidity to the appearance of each text panel between the images. The four repeated images suggest a noose, while the verticality of the stack gives the impression of the scaffold. Language and image are used to represent the violence of the Jim Crow mob, bringing to mind the image of the lynched body. Consequently, the relationship between text and image in the work is completely different from the way the caption is used to domesticate photography, which always turns the image into an illustration of something rather than a complement to an event." -Okwui Enwezor
