Soliloquy is from Martine Syms’ Kita’s World series.  A selection of videos that riff on the 1990s BET video music show Cita’s World, known for featuring a Black virtual reality character as host. In the series, Kita enacts the performances of everyday life in a hyper-digitized world. The character’s roles range from meditation guru to cultural commentator, elaborating on questions of race, gender, and technology prevalent throughout the artist’s practice. In these video works, Syms creates an environment in which being human is inextricably linked to the impact and interruptions of technological innovation.
