ACTA EST FABULA (The piece is over) features a newly commissioned video in which the artist modifies, inter-splices, and re-purposes films starring actress, singer, and dancer, Dorothy Dandridge, from the 1940s and 50s as part of an immersive environment that explores representations of the black sexual body and the exoticism of opera in two works of mid-twentieth century cinema.
