SLAVES and SAINTS

 

IMG_9267

A group of new work at Fort Sagres, Portugal, within the exhibition „Peregrinacao – a partir de las Paneis de Sao Vicente/Pilgrimage – from the Panels of San Vicente“

This piece is dedicated to Emile Akakbo from Togo, who made for me a beautiful crow mask, and all the artists around the world.

My gratitude to Drury Brennan, based in Berlin, who travelled to Sagres with us and made the beautiful calligraphy; to Babette Semmer assisting in the making, and Fico Artista who helped and performed the crow dance.
