Film
First presented at the South African Pavilion during the 2017 Venice Biennale, this three-channel video is a meditation on slavery's dismemberment of African identity. Each video portrays an individual whose boat is slowly sinking as they offer no resistance. It is a poetic confrontation of slavery's erasure of personal histories and the expendability of life. Although rooted in the history of colonialism in South Africa, the work resonates with Newfoundland's little-known connection to the slave trade. Low grade salt cod was exported in the 1800s to feed slaves, indentured labourers and, later, free workers in the Caribbean. IMAGE: Mohau Modisakeng. Still from "Passage" (2017).
