In the Face of History
Through international archival research, Adama Delphine Fawundu has amassed dozens of found newsprint stories, reproductions of paintings, advertisements, and more ranging from Antebellum American South to the mid-20th century highlighting historical records of trauma, hope, resistance, and the brilliance of people who have felt the oppression of historical events. How they are told, and retold? Fawundu intervenes in these moments by transposing herself onto the print - simultaneously bearing quantum witness and perhaps acting as a photo-psychic intercessor. Perhaps our perception of history has a way of impacting how we move forward in the present.
