 Notes
Abstract: The work of the Atis Rezistans, a Port-au-Prince-based artists collective, is inspired by both their spiritual beliefs—the iconography of Vodou is a prominent but not omnipresent motif in the art—and their urban environment: the immediate setting of Grand Rue, as well as the rest of Haiti’s megalopolis, Port-au-Prince. Led by an established Haitian artist, Andre Eugene, the Atis Rezistans use found materials to create powerful representations of their lived experience: religious faith, natural disaster, sexuality, hope for the future.
Funding: Funding provided by NEH collaborative grant.
General Note: Wooden sculpture with red eyes. Note that certain aggressive spirits in Vodou are classified as je wouj ‘red eyes.’ The hands and the feet are bound and the penis is prominent. Notice the flag on the left.
