Cosmo Whyte is a Jamaican-born, trans-disciplinary artist who employs drawing, performance, and sculpture to create conceptual work that explores how notions of identity are disrupted by migration—particularly migration as an unfinished arc of motion whose final resting point remains an open-ended question. He situates his work in the liminal space between early culture shock and final acclimatization. Cosmo’s creative process begins through the interrogation of his own body and the personal memories that are embedded within it. He uses this archive as his entry point into collective political interrogations.
