“The Gaze” takes its point of departure in the experience of being racialised, a position that must continuously relate itself to the criminalisation and/or exotification of one’s own body. In “The Gaze”, the gaze is returned back and directed towards the Police and the authorities, making them the observed object. It is an act that aims to renegotiate the relations of subordinance in a supposedly judicial society that fails at protecting its black and brown citizens from the Police.
