The Studio Museum in Harlem | 144 West 125th Street
Steffani Jemison’s first live performance, You Completes Me, features Houston-based actor Autumn Knight narrating a long-form poem. Excerpted from street fiction novels, the script is paired with projected images and sound. The performance mirrors the novels’ narrative structure and tropes, as well as their themes of mobility, kinship, violence, prayer and love. Sited in Harlem—where many street fiction novels take place and are widely sold—You Completes Me was commissioned on the occasion of Fore.
