Black Velvet

Black Velvet-Architectures And Archetypes

is a multidisciplinary performance art work created and performed By Shamel Pitts, Mirelle Martins, and Lucca Del Carlo

This work researches and shares the sensibility of ideals, models, structures, and textures as a projection of self. The dealing within these structures of systems is to discover what is inside of us, between us, and around us. To hopefully bridge the distances so that we can see and meet each other.  Some systems must be broken, re imagined,  in order to reconstruct.

Black Velvet is an art work that aims to reflect and share the colorfulness within us.
