Reflections of Wata

 

Reflections of Wata is a video installation created by Alison Duke for the New-Found-Lands Exhibition: exploring historical and contemporary connections between Newfoundland and the Caribbean Diaspora.  The exhibition is curated by Pamela Edmonds and Bushra Junaid at the Eastern Edge Gallery from September 9- October 18th. The Krio word for water is wata and this installation speaks to the journeys of black bodies crossing the Atlantic Ocean from the time of slavery to immigration.
