As part of the ongoing series “to build to bury to remember”, Sarah Ama Duah examines the deconstruction of monuments, while developing hybrid forms between sculpture and people. She adopts a sculptural approach to the topic, inviting performers to reflect as one on the fetishized status of historical monuments by creating alternative, temporary monuments made from latex using their own bodies. What different forms can sculptural appreciation take? To whom do we want to dedicate them and what do we actually dedicate?
How is it possible to handle the void that remains behind when a colonial monument is demolished?
Sarah Ama Duah adopts a multidisciplinary approach to her work that involves sculpture, performance, and video. From the perspective of a feminist and a person of color, she explores the relationship between the body and sculpture, investigating concepts of fetishization and the potential found in synthetic surfaces.
