Exhibition «Island Template: Île modèle: Manman zile» de Tessa Mars

From May 31 to June 29, 2019, Le Centre d’Art presents at the”Maison Dufort” the exhibition “Island Template: Île Modèle: Manman Zile” by Tessa Mars. This exhibition offers an exploration of the island and urban lifestyle through the Haitian experience.

It takes Haiti with its singular history as a subject of study to better understand the issues related to “insularity” inside and outside the boundaries of the territory. It also seeks to determine how different power relationships sometimes violate our island societies.

The three titles in English, French and Creole are a reminder of the multiculturalism of our societies and their historical experiences. They each raise a perspective of the same questioning and the process of constructing the most complete picture possible. “Manman Zile, île modèle, island template” offers the opportunity to the Haitian public to penetrate into the creative universe of the artist and to share her questions about notions of belonging, violence, sacrifices, transformations and of shared destiny of beings and things.

The works and series have been made mostly in residence in various countries of the Caribbean, the United States and Germany and have never been shown in Haiti.
