Rayvenn Shaleigha D’Clark

Speaker for the Leading antiracist art, craft and design course

Rayvenn Shaleigha D’Clark is a UK based digital sculptor, writer, researcher and curator living in Central London, whose practice employs the digital hybridity of sculpture to create an ‘elevated reframing of black autonomy’. The artist is represented by the talent agency, MTArt Agency. From hyper-realistic feet and eerily life-like faces to smooth, graceful busts and interactive digital sculptures, D’Clark’s work is intriguing and challenging in equal measure.

D’Clark chronicles the reframing of black anatomy in order to open up a dialogue about the irregular and marginalised position of the black artist, turning ‘the system’ back on itself. She uses the power, influence and materials of the industry to present an alternative narrative history and perspective. She explores ‘the nuances of identity that pivot between hyper-visibility and invisibility, offering a perspective of the SOUL as a crossbreed of aesthetic references. She asks: ‘When will the black body truly escape the guise of the white imagination?’
