“L’Autre-chienne”, 2012
Marie Antoinette character of myth. 
 — with Alexandria Eregbu.

“An Afro-Surreal aesthetic addresses these lost legacies and reclaims the souls of our cities, from Kehinde Wiley painting the invisible men (and their invisible motives) in NYC to Yinka Shonibare beheading 17th (and 21st) century sexual tourists of Europe. From Nick Cave’s soundsuits to the words you are reading right now, the message is clear: The world is ready for an Afro-Surreal art movement.”
