A continuation of Nyugen’s Bundlehouse series, works created to reflect on those facing forced migration and rehousing in foreign homes using the items and memories left behind after a disaster. This exhibition in the Mobile Art Gallery will feature work created during Nyugen’s stay in Washington, DC.
Nyugen E. Smith is a Caribbean-American interdisciplinary artist based in Jersey City, NJ. Through performance, found object sculpture, mixed media drawing, painting, video, photo, and writing, Smith deepens his knowledge of the historical and present-day conditions of Black African descendants in the diaspora. Trauma, spiritual practices, language, violence, memory, architecture, landscape, and climate change are primary concerns in his practice.
