Tessa Mars: “Île modèle, Manman zile, Island Template” (Catalog)


[Many thanks to Veerle Poupeye (Critical.Caribbean.Art.) for bringing this item to our attention.] Île modèle, Manman zile, Island Template is the catalog for Tessa Mars’s monographic exhibition presented from May 31 to June 29, 2019, at the Art Center at Maison Dufort in Port-au-Prince. It is a bilingual edition with texts in French and English by David Frohnapfel, Veerle Poupeye, and Barbara Prézeau-Stephenson. It also includes interviews with Christopher Cozier and Carlo A. Célius.

Description (Naima): Tessa Mars’s artistic production is laced with Caribbean influences and inspired by the masters of Haitian painting such as Hector Hyppolite. Her work, marked by a quest for identity, draws on both personal and national history, island dynamics, and societal violence, and it questions her position as a woman in this context.

Coedited with Le Centre d’Art – Haïti.
