The Readers | Endless Ocean series 2020
Drawing with marker, paper cut out fixed with entomological pins on paper panel;
This work begins a series in which childhood shows as a starting point for a reflection on the construction of ethnic identity. In this manufacturing process, the slowness of the drawing functions as an self reflection time. This time allows me to think about the formation of my own identity. The series “Endless Ocean” talks about this immense space and at the same time so significant that it was the Atlantic Ocean in the imagination of men, women and children enslaved during the African diaspora.
