Dominique White weaves together the theories of "Blaccelerationism" and Afrofuturism with the nautical myths of Black Diaspora into a term she defines as the Shipwrecked; a reflexive verb and state of being. Her sculptures demonstrate how Black life could extend beyond its own subjective limits and act as beacons or vessels of an ignored civilisation defined as the Stateless; a realm in which the past, present and future have converged into a Black Future.

Recent exhibitions and talks include: "Abandon(ed) Vessel", Kevin Space (Vienna, 2019), "Fugitive of the State(less) ", VEDA (Florence, 2019), "Flood-tide", Love Unlimited (Glasgow, 2018), "The Share of Opulence; Doubled; Fractional" Sophie Tappeiner Gallery (Vienna, 2018), "°c", (London, 2018), "The Conch (April) ", South London Gallery (London, 2018).
