  • This program is part of Ayo Janeen Jackson’s exhibition, “Redemption! The Black Unicorn Wormhole” on view at Herron School of Art + Design, June 26- August 10, 2024. Support for this exhibition is provided by 900 North Studios. 

    “Tear Suture Scab” explores the redemptive power of the unicorn as exemplified in Medieval European art, through an Afro-futurist lens. Surrealist and absurdist in concept, it is an allegory of death, resurrection, and the release of trauma. Its fantastical imagery and coded humor disarm the viewer while addressing the violence that marks Black American life. Scored by Greg Tate, it was the legendary cultural critic and composer’s final film project. Written and directed by Ayo Janeen Jackson, the film runs 24 minutes.
