From screenprints applied on bags of goods purchased in Bamako, Mali, the series of works “Artifacts” reproduces drawings found Mali, the series of works “Artifacts” reproduces drawings found in reports of enslaved people who managed to escape from their owners. In much of these accounts, the methods of torture by which captured slaves were subjected were narrated. Commonly, these torments began with lashings and beatings, in order to be applied, in fragilized bodies, objects that would hinder new escapes. In the list of objects were chokers, bells, chains, weights, among others that denounced the new attempts to escape.
