In this body of new and recent work for Liste 2024, Y. Malik Jalal continues his utilization of traditional craft and assemblage techniques to explore themes of Black history, power and humanity, referencing both the legacy of metal artisans in the Southern United States and pop culture. By merging materials like steel and iron with an index of found photos depicting Black American family life in unexpected and intimate moments, Jalal addresses the industries and inequalities surrounding representation and the larger consumption of Black life and subjectivity.
