Voyage, 2022


still from Voyage, 2022, digital video

'Voyage' was made for and exhibited in the 2022 Kingston Biennial. It is a collaborative work which was made from talks held with Ludgi Savon (Martinique), Mafalda Mondestin (Haiti) and Phillip Thomas (Jamaica) during the Pandemic on Zoom. The collaboration allowed us to discuss how all 4 of us were using the Afro-Caribbean figure in black silhouette in our work and what ideas that indicated for us in our imagery. The work is made up of animated sequences draw from the work of each artist involved. 'Voyage' is also connected with The Personal Storytelling Workshop as it uses a card deck made from the stills of this video work.
