Antipop Consortium
Antipop Consortium emerged in the early 2000s as one of the underground hip-hop scene’s most inventive groups, bridging the gap between New York hip-hop and glitchy IDM. Group members Priest, Beans, and M. Sayyid first joined forces in 1997, along with producer E. Blaize. After some underground singles that didn’t reach far beyond New York’s boroughs, the Ark 75 label released Tragic Epilogue, the group’s debut full-length, in 2000. Though the album wasn’t quite as daring as Antipop Consortium’s successive releases, it nonetheless garnered substantial acclaim, placing the group among similarly edgy New York underground rap artists such as Company Flow…more on Allmusic

 

Gilleam Trapenberg
Masculinity and Representation have long played a part in 

my work, since these are relevant themes that make up the social landscape in Curacao, an island in the Caribbean where I was born and raised. Curacao is an island of paradoxes. Where the cliche of macho-culture exists alongside strong, independent women and pink coloured skies. Big Papi is a visual research into the image culture of masculinity set against a sunset lit Caribbean landscape. A time of day in which borders are less defined.
The stereotypes and clichés associated with macho culture form the starting point for the work, as is the same with most of my former projects. Since the work is greatly personal I am aware that while I am looking critically at the subject matter I am also seducing and romanticising the subjects and landscapes I photograph.”

These photographs were made in St. Lucia, Barbados, St. Vincent & The Grenadines, St. Maarten and Curaçao between 2015 and 2017.
