At the End of Daybreak
At The End of Daybreak, is hand painted mural of a shaded tropical vegetation and an audiovisual installation on a translucent life size cube in the middle of the gallery space. The installation evokes the time of the 'daybreak' -the beginning of a new day or dawn- Inside the cube, moving images of a volcano erupting and lava are constantly reproduced and a voice narrates out loud a section from the book Cahier d'un retour au pays natal form Aimé Cesaire that recalls for an awakening, a rally, and expresses metaphors with nature itself in the Caribbean postcolonial time.
