Video Sculpture,  2013

The colonial and neo-colonial history of the African Dutch Wax textile is codified and embedded in the textile. The textile  was produced using the techniques originally used to make  African Dutch Wax. 

 West African women were filmed wrapping and unwrapping the textile on their heads.
