Jean Sebastien Boncy, Untitled, archival pigment print on photo luster paper, 13 x 19", 2020
Sebastien Boncy was born and raised in Haiti, and now lives and works in Texas. He received his BFA from the University of Houston, and his MFA from the University of North Texas. Recently, his work has been exhibited at The Oak Cliff cultural center, published in Sugar and Rice magazine, and part of the multi-media presentation Houston No Limits at the Co-Cathedral of The Sacred Heart. His writing currently appears in Not That But This.
Boncy works from an ever growing and uncategorized archive of photographs that find resolution as sequences, installations, publications and other types of image networks. His major focus, for the foreseeable future, is an open-source visual archive of Htown. It can be viewed at: http://purpletimespaceswamp.tumblr.com.
Boncy has chosen to support The Black Trans Travel Fund which is a mutual-aid project developed in order to help provide Black transgender women with the financial resources needed to be able to self-determine safer alternatives to travel, where women feel less likely to experience verbal harassment or physical harm. This project was created out of direct response to the relentless and unacceptable violence Black transgender women across the country have been experiencing.
