Visual Art / New Gallery

This body of work poses the question, what happens when the next creole generation does not accept their parents' material culture as inalienable? This exhibition is situated in a scenario of how our parents make their rituals and practices more attractive and alluring in the moment just before they pass on, the golden hour before death.
