Dominique White | Deadweight

Max Mara Art Prize for Women presents

Whitechapel Gallery

2 July - 15 September 2024

Collezione Maramotti

27 October 2024 – 16 February 2025


Dominique White, winner of the ninth edition of the Max Mara Art Prize for Women, presents a new body of work, Deadweight, realised during a six-month residency organised by #CollezioneMaramotti.

A thought-provoking exploration of rebellion and transformation, Deadweight comprises four large-scale sculptural works which continue the artist's interest in creating new worlds for ‘Blackness’ and fascination with the metaphoric potency and regenerative power of the sea.

The title of the project derives from a nautical term which collapses everything on a ship into a single unit which determines the ship’s ability to float and function as intended. White deliberately inverts this, offering disruption as opposed to stability -a reckoning with the tipping point of the ship to offer the possibility of emancipation through abolition.
