Dancing in the Absence of Pain

Dancing in the Absence of Pain is comprised of home videos shot by the artist’s grandfather, Franklin Pigatt. Following Pigatt’s passing in 2018, artist Terence Price II edited some of this footage, capturing decades of social and family history as seen by his grandfather. Squarely within the genre of home video,
Price’s film documents everyday family life, highlighting relationships between moments of familial joy
and love and broader cultural histories that exist outside the bounds of the domestic sphere and that
inform the social bonds that create community.
