In “SHE KEEPS ME DAMN ALIVE,” Danielle Brathwaite-Shirley Asks Players to Protect Black Trans People

Danielle Brathwaite-Shirley’s solo exhibition “SHE KEEPS ME DAMN ALIVE” opens at London’s arebyte. Subverting the language of the first-person shooter, the game asks players—armed with a hot pink firearm—to NOT shoot Black Trans people, and then witness the results of their (in)action. Inverting the standard logic of the shooter genre, the installation creates a space to “capture, preserve and archive Black Trans existence” and reflect on personal responsibility.
