El Amarillo Representa el Oro (2017)

Palm oil was used during the sale of slaves; It used to be applied to their skin to enhance their muscular body or to make them look more healthy. My interest in glitter comes along with a reference to gold or value. Along with sugar, slaves were another type of currency of the time. This work does not only speaks about what used to happen to slaves during that time but it also reflects on current brown and black folk and what is our value in modern times.
