Part of the SPAH Seminar Series, artist Ana Hupe gives a talk on Footnotes to Triangular Cartographies

The Footnotes to triangular cartographies derive from travel notes I wrote while staying in Salvador (Brazil), Havana (Cuba) and some Yoruba sacred cities in Nigeria. By approaching, superimposing or juxtaposing the elements from these three places, I rediscover the common ground between those cultures, marked by colonial violence. The triangles are a means of shaping a common history and honouring the knowledge of the invisible - Yoruba technology brought to the “New World” during navigation times.

You can see the artwork in person before Ana's talk by visiting ESCALA's Teaching and Research Space (CB21) in the Constable Building, next to Wivenhoe House Hotel from 2:15pm. 

About the speaker:
Ana Hupe (1983 Rio de Janeiro, lives in Berlin) is doctor in Fine Arts by Federal University of Rio de Janeiro (2016), after one year of research at Udk Berlin. She dedicates her artistic work to rescue hidden histories of resistance, rewritten in installations with multiple narratives, building counter-memories of colonial archives. She applies various techniques such as lens-based media, texts, printmaking and sculpture.
