FROM FANON TO CAPÉCIA
Sculptural installation: weaving in alpaca, acrylic, cotton, hair and book.
In 1948, Mayotte Capécia, author of the novel Je suis Martinique , was criticized by the well-known psychiatrist and writer Frantz Fanon. For years Capécia was only known due to Fanon's criticism which in turn made her the face of the lactification complex (pathology invented by Fanon). From Fanon to Capécia is a work of archiving, recognition and exploration of the experience of a black woman during the colonial era.
