"This project features a collaboration between Maria Hinds, Matthew Thompson, and Herman Wallace. It documents the life of Herman Wallace, a former black panther and member of Angola 3, during his forty-two years of solitary confinement in Louisiana state prisons. His story follows account through a collection of personal items formed or acquired during his incarceration that testify to the resilient strength and creative ingenuity of a human spirit forced to endure decades in the severely punitive environments of the United States prison system.
Through artistic expression and imaginative improvisation, these elements became functional instruments for survival, reused to navigate, circumvent, and ultimately transcend the limitations of prison life, affirming humanity in a set of circumstances. otherwise inhumane. Incarnations of memory, self-identity, social connection, and political determination, these elements reflect both community and loss, within and without, struggle and pleasure, as well as value and transcendental human freedom.
The project catalogs a selection of Herman's possessions that he gave to his follower and friend Maria Hinds.
