"Into the Mind of the Colonizer"
Adelaide Damoah is a British artist of Ghanaian descent working at the intersection of painting and performance within the context of colonialism, identity, sexuality and spirituality. Damoah has spent years searching for books, stamps, photos, and maps relating to the British Empire. Recently she found an archive of out of print books relating to the Empire printed between the mid 17th and mid 19th century and will bring these documents to life through a participatory performance.
