Using tapestry, film, and sculpture, Alberta Whittle creates an immersive environment that invites us to slow down. Whittle draws from her Barbadian and Scottish identities to explore provoking themes, from sustainability to decolonization to police brutality. Using a collage of images, materials, and shape, her installation renders the artist’s semantic commitment to analyze historical and modern situations in our societies such as racism, colonialism, migration. Whittle finds in self-empathy and in collective caretaking the disposition and key methods to fight anti-blackness.
