Scenes from 


Still.Life. The Exhibition

 Third + Fourth November 2017  |  Chi Studio - Trinidad





INSTALLATION ONE: ephemeral landscapes



Installation two: The Cocoa House

I remember the sound of that nutmeg house, the music of women’s chatter as they sat on the floor sorting the red mace, skirts tucked inside crossed legs, the cracking of nutmeg shells, and the dust that hung in shafts of light, making that old plantation style warehouse, with its pitched roof, look like a cathedral. The fragrance of nutmeg would stay on my skin, and scent my hair. How many women had smelled like this for hundreds of years?
