Edmonds' Shotgun (2014) is a video that captures an intimate moment between two Black men who take turns blowing smoke into each other's mouths. As the light of the cigarette flickers during each inhale, the artist extends the private moment into a passage of time that portrays the men's vulnerability.

For the safety of our community, Landmarks Video may be viewed freely by those who have BACS access to the ART building. For general access, please make an appointment to visit the Visual Arts Center
