Adama Delphine Fawundu
Featured in the Main studio, multidisciplinary visual artist Adama Delphine Fawundu has created a photographic backdrop installation that includes a corresponding collection of garments. The garments were made in collaboration with fashion designer Marco Hall, and the entire installation is available as props for anyone using the studio. The installation is in conversation with the artists current solo exhibition at The Newark Museum of Art, “Adama Delphine Fawundu: In the Spirit of Àṣẹ” which is open through March 10, 2024. Patterns and garments are a central element of Fawundu’s work in photography, performance, installation, and video, which is centered on womanhood, familial and femme ancestral power. Her work asks audiences to imagine futures: “What kind of world do you want to live in?” During her residency with SHINE this year Fawundu will also utilize the installation to create new work with her collaborators, “my son’s”, which will be featured in a solo exhibition in SHINE’S Changing Room.
The photographs featured below, of model Carolyn Nicole, were made by Anthony Alvarez, Assistant Director, to serve as an online look book.
