The Colour Purple
The Colour Purple Exhibition includes selections from the photographic series “The Colour Purple” and a three channel video installation “There’s Just Something About Death That Makes Us Dance: the revival.” The images included in this exhibition are of a two-day burial ceremony of Zion Revival Churches in the vicinity of Kingston, St. Andrews and Long Coffee, Manchester on the island of Jamaica in 2015. Both projects are auto-ethnographies, exploring themes of Creolization and religious syncretism. The exhibition is a part of a larger body of work exploring the representation of Afro and Afro-Caribbean culture and identity, by presenting counter frame[s] to the accepted narratives of the African diaspora in America.
