Pascale Faublas is a senior artist, living and working in Haiti. She has exhibited in America, France and Haiti, and has participated in numerous group shows. She is the owner and director of Atelier Kreyol in Jacmel, co-ordinates a group of Jacmelian artisans, and is a central figure in the preservation, transmission and sustainability of Haitian crafts. She recently exhibited in the women in art show with the Ministry of culture in Port-au-Prince.
The overarching methodology for this show seeks to use the multiple platforms of new internet technologies. This process is a way in which to "dissolve the boundaries" which have separated art practices around the globe. These shows in the Tate's Oil Tanks allow us an opportunity to participate in a collaborative exhibition in London, with us in the Caribbean. Trinidad & Haiti - Visual Art Exchanges comes out of an 18-month series of exchanges and on-going conversations among the seven of us who are participating. Johnson, Ramesar and Kain from Trinidad, and Ambroise, Ernst, Craft and Faublas from Jacmel Haiti. Our seven interconnected bodies of work being presented range from film, sculpture, craft, drawing, painting and recuperated found materials. They centre on investigations in the context of Haiti, merging a view through a Trinidadian lens, with a Haitian visual language which speaks back to the viewer. This exchange has enabled critical conversations which continue to inform our art practices on both islands.
