Provenance features a liminal figure maneuvering through space with a house structure worn as a headdress. The house structure is a replication of my maternal family home in Grenada, West Indies that dates back to the turn of the 19th century. By manipulating the surface of the polyester prints using mixed media techniques of collage and embroidery I explore concepts of past and present-day colonialism, and notions of provenance as it relates to origin, authorship and ownership.
