Maud Sulter @ Rivington Place

15 January 2016 - 2 April 2016

Maud Sulter was an influential visual artist, poet, playwright and curator of Scottish-Ghanaian descent. Throughout her career and across different media, Sulter has questioned the lack of representation of black women in the histories of art and photography, and critically investigated the complex experiences of the African diaspora in European history and culture over the past six hundred years.
Syrcas the artist’s most intricate and layered body of work, aims to revive the forgotten history of the genocide of black Europeans during the Holocaust through the technique of photomontage. Sulter juxtaposes canonical imagery from classical European art history with African art objects, overlaid on vintage postcards of picturesque, unspecified Alpine landscapes.
