Madras Project, Martinique
In April, 2017 I traveled to Martinique (FWI) as part of my Leonore Annenberg Fellowship. My work there was focused on building and working with community to ask questions about identity, heritage, tradition and independence, using Madras fabric as the impetus for the work. I allowed the conversations surrounding these questions to inform actions that aimed to co-opt symbols associated with the country's past to propose new associations moving into the future. The PDF below is a summary of the scope of the project. More detailed information can be provided upon request.
