Jeannette Ehlers | The Invisible Empire
Trinidad & Tobago / Danemark
In The Invisible Empire, the artist works with a contemporary-related approach to slavery. By using her Trinidadian father, Roy Clement Pollard, a descendent of African slaves, as narrator and performer in the video , she combines past with present, personal with universal ties. The piece connects several aspects of the theme, trying in an artistic and poetic way to raise awareness of post colonialism and modern slavery.
