Project Space Artist Residency
Prompted by Caribbean cultural/political studies; familial and regional histories; folklore and memory, Samantha Box constructs restless photographs using her body and hair; Caribbean fruits and vegetables; heirloom textiles and jewelry; reedy seedlings; and archival photographs and paintings. These images are autoethnographic, articulating hybrid Jamaican/Trinidadian diaspora experience, from her embodied perspective.
