Preach R Sun’s work, a combination of protest activism and social critique (described as, Fugitivism and Conjuring) incorporates and fuses art and activism as a means to investigate and interrogate the nature and limits of freedom, while simultaneously posing a direct challenge to systems of oppression and injustice. Sun accomplishes this through implementation of unconventional protest tactics geared towards the conception and fomentation of revolutionary action. And through – what he likes to call – an, ‘ANY MEANS NECESSARY’, interdisciplinary approach that involves multimedia, experimental (extemporaneously driven) theater performance elements, site specific social experiments and other visual art practices e.g., assemblage and digital collage.
