Natural and artificial fibres in a variety of crafted techniques and process were and optional extra, to offset colours and textures. Silver elements and components were added for structure, links and in the creation of dynamic forms and shapes in one-of-a-kind brooches, bracelets, earrings and neckpieces.

Marvelous Real
"Edouard Duval Carrié is a Miami-based Haitian-American artist, known for his colourful and politically-informed multimedia practice. His work draws upon the symbolic system of Haitian culture and society and redeploys them in new ways to create art forms which carve out a new aesthetic in contemporary Caribbean art. … In this proposed exhibition the artist will present, amongst other works, 15 elaborate engravings based on his own reading of a seminal novel of Caribbean literature, The Kingdom of this World. Written by the Cuban novelist Alejo Carpentier in 1949, it has been called the first novel of ‘magical realism’. Carpentier himself in a 1949 lecture called it the “marvelous real.” Deploying the main character of the novel, Ti- Noel in a series of engravings which will then be placed in plexi glass, these pieces which draw from a marvelous oral understanding of the Haitian revolution now depict the revolution as a complex event in which the enslaved and the Loas of Haiti tussled not only with the French but with the revolutionary leadership of the slave revolution. The exhibition will also contain eight pieces called Memory Windows. These remarkable works are back-lit plexi glass pieces in which the artist reworks his repertoire of signs and symbols, assembling them so as to tell new stories." - Prof Anthony Bogues
