Parade Créole: DIS/PLAY
Research into an Eigenkleid produced for Dr. Ayesha Prout. Installation view at Galerie Sakuku, Göttingen. Exhibition Parade Créole, November 2021-January 2022. The installation’s drawings are an emotional exploration of the contexts of Dr. Prout’s devotion to Trinidad Carnival, her submission to state and immigration authorities in her career development between the Caribbean and the United Kingdom, and her work as a forensic psychologist at the Children’s Authority of Trinidad and Tobago. The work is mounted on a frame from MOKIT, a modular system which guides the research aesthetics of the Parade Créole exhibition in its entirety.
