Marigold Santos – MIRROR/MOTHER (fragments)

Marigold Santos – MIRROR/MOTHER (fragments)

MIRROR/MOTHER (fragments) explores self-hood as an experience of shifting identities and realities. Works of drawing, film and installation renegotiate the artist’s lived experience of migration and movement between cultures and tradition into meaningful fragments of personal myth, narrative and folklore. In MIRROR/MOTHER (fragments) Santos furthers her investigation of colonial narrative, visibility, and empowerment alive with fantastical and otherworldly imagery. The artist draws on material and evolving ideas from two previous bodies of work: BLACK MIRROR, a series focusing on dualities and binaries and INVISIBLE MOTHER, a series of work challenging conceptual roles of light and dark through portrayals of women in folklore and beyond. MIRROR/MOTHER (fragments) re-combines these histories and ideas and speaks to multifariousness by providing new paths by which to follow and deviate.
