Satch Hoyt
“The afro comb was one of those few objects that made their way to the new world on the middle passage, under unbelievably cruel and inhumane circumstances. Upon arrival in the new world, the comb, like a few other objects, rituals and the body itself, became the link between the lost past, that benighted present and a bleak future.” The afro comb is the centerpiece of Satch Hoyt’s exhibition Riding Celestial Chariots: On Mining Entangled Vernaculars in Berlin. Hoyt’s work was part of The Record: Contemporary Art & Vinyl (2010) at the Nasher Museum. More.
