Artist ( Description ): 

Languid Hands is a London-based artistic and curatorial collaboration between DJ, filmmaker and programmer Rabz Lansiquot, and writer, facilitator and live art practitioner Imani Robinson. They began collaborating together in 2015, through their work with the collective sorryyoufeeluncomfortable (SYFU), informed by ongoing explorations in black and queer studies, black creative practice, black liberatory praxis and queer methodologies. SYFU projects included a British Council funded research trip to Kenya to begin building relationships with queer Kenyan artists to develop an exchange residency; co-curating the BBZBLKBK Alternative Graduate Show 2018 aimed at promoting work by artists who identify as queer womxn, trans and non-binary people of Black Ancestry at Copeland Gallery, London; and curating (BUT) WHAT ARE YOU DOING ABOUT WHITE SUPREMACY?, a group exhibition at Many Studios as part of Glasgow International Festival 2018. Languid Hands are currently in residence at Raven Row, London, UK and are curating two projects this season: Towards a Black Testimony: Prayer, Protest, Peace at Stroom, Den Haag, NL, and away, completely, a group show at Narrative Projects, London, UK.
