Lock My Body, Trap My Mind
“Lock My Body, Trap My Mind” is a piece Jesse made for his last solo show, “I Am I Be.” The shows theme was about identity and breaking out of the layers of preconceived boxes placed upon an African Americans. The title comes from a Jay-Z lyric, “Lock my body, can’t trap my mind/easily explain why we adapt to crime/ I rather live enormous than die dormant/ that’s how we on it.” Meaning you can physically shackle me but my mind will always remain free and we should take all I can get out of it. Physical strain is represented by the boxer and the disfigured face, yet no one can trap his mind.
