In conjunction with their artist residency at Mental Health Arts Space Berlin, “My Servant’s Master”, a solo exhibition by Day Eve/Audioslut invites the audience to dwell gently in a space of grief, transformation and healing, pausing and slowing down to create their own grief “trails”. It is an immersive and multimedia exhibition that merges photography, film and sound, one that invites participants to face their existential condition and embrace the fullness of their being through different stages of transition and transformation.
The installation is grounded in mindfulness, meditative thinking and non-western healing practices. It depicts moments of (re-)birth, encounter and intimacy between beings for whom experiences of marginalisation, grief, pain and wounding have become hauntingly familiar. In carving out a space of tenderness, empathy and care that offers a moment of repose and communion beyond the speakable, “My Servant’s Master” articulates the depths of Black grief, transformation, and enduring love.

“To be loving is to be open to grief, to be touched by sorrow, even sorrow that is unending. The way we grieve is informed by whether we know love.” – bell hooks, All About Love: New Visions.
