Kòr Mwen Toupatou

"My body is everywhere: the bomb which destroys my house also damages my body in so far as the house was already an indication of my body." - Jean-Paul Sartre

Started in 2017 and exhibited at the 5th Ghetto Biennale in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, Kòr Mwen Toupatou (My Body is Everywhere) is an on-going project which maps the French colonies in the Caribbean. To date, this includes Haiti, Guadeloupe and Martinique. Bringing together pictures of slave plantations, cemeteries and the remains of the white colonial infrastructure. Looking at the notion of death and how representations of the black body remains embedded throughout the landscape, in both man-made and organic matter.

Coming soon
