I NOMADIZED, THEREFORE I AM (II)
Anja Marais (South African , b.1974)
In her series Out of Sight/Out of Mind, Marais reconstructs portraits of Haitian immigrants in warped pictures, often portrayed with an object that represents their ancestors’ trade. The portraits recall the distorted view we have of immigration, and the fragmented lives that result from it.
