C-Magazine art review
I finally got a chance to read Mary McDonald’s very thorough CMagazine’s summer 2017 art review of New-Found-Lands: Exploring the historical and contemporary connections between Newfoundland and the Caribbean diaspora curated by Pamela Edmonds and Bushra Junaid – Eastern Edge Gallery, St. John’s Newfoundland.
MacDonald writes about the connection I make between water and labour in my mult-screening digital installation entitled Reflections of Wata. This work is comprised of 3 panels that screen simultaneously. Digital installations allow me to work more freely with content. In this medium, I feel like I am not bounded by traditional filmmaking rules of space and time. And I feel that I can communicate more poetically, rhythmically. Since, I started my journey into the arts writing poetry, perhaps digital installations will become more significant to my artistic practice today. Go to C-Magazine to read the review of this entire show.
NEWS FLASH: A single channel of Reflections of Wata will screen in a retrospective film program in Toronto on Black Canadian performance in November 2017. This retrospective will also feature The Trilogy (1997) a music video I directed for Motion featuring Apani and Tara Chase. Stay tuned for the official press.
