Of-Note Magazine presents: Guyana- 3 Image Makers Envision HomeWednesday, May 30th, 2012 Categories: Reviews, Updates
Of Note Magazine presents a new feature by Nalini Mohabir who currently lives in Toronto, Canada. Mohabir has investigated the work of 3 prominent Guyanese female artists: Roshini Kempadoo, Keisha Scarville and Sandra Brewster.
Roshini Kempadoo, Keisha Scarville, and Sandra Brewster are women with roots in Guyana who currently reside outside of the country’s geographical borders, though not its imagined ones. Their images remind us that we are all situated – in relation to particular peoples, places, and histories that walk with us. This is the fact of the diaspora. Taken together, the work of these artists reflects the ghostly presences that linger over the concept of “home” for the Guyanese diaspora. And for all (formerly) colonized and racialized diasporas, home remains a very complicated project.
