Unfolding Desires

Unfolding Desires (1997) comprises seven old wooden ironing boards placed in a spiral arrangement, each stacked with neatly folded white sheets. The worn and chipped boards retain the traces of many years of repetitive domestic labour while the shape and rhythmic arrangement of the boards suggest transatlantic passage. This piece also includes two monitors installed flush with the wall. Like the photographic mementos in Seven Powers, the images on the monitors record and commemorate the descendants of those displaced by slavery.
