The 14th Factory's "Encounter" campaign introduces the project to LA's creative community through collaboration. A global artist collective created by Hong Kong-based British artist Simon Birch, the 14th Factory invites Mecca Vazie Andrews to connect with the exhibition and space through dance, movement, performance and play. The campaign was released on Instagram as a three part series.
In the Meteor Room piece, Mecca honors family and ancestry. The colors black, white and red represent Trinidad whilst the dance attributes the light of humanity with atmospheric friction.
This piece is inspired by Simon Birch's Inhumans, which Mecca believes presents fighters in a graceful structured and organized "quarrel for no reason." She addresses the conflict of fighting one's self and the science of the human reassembling and regenerating following battle.
