Cinthia Oram / Carnivale

straight mask new res 2

This series is called Carnivale it deconstructs the meaning of carnival in the form of a collage, examining the past through the products of slavery; cotton, sugar, rum, tobacco and indigo. Juxtaposing images and text, past and present produces a representation of what carnival means to me as a black woman. Carnival today is a social and political celebration for all social classes. My aim is to recreate it in a physical, photographic and contemporary form, bringing the past into the present in remembrance of its origins.
