Artist’s Statement
A Litany For Survival is named after Audre Lourde’s 1978 poem. This performance uses oil on canvas as an embodied representation of the struggle, confusion and uncertainty of Syrian refugees- as mirrored in Lourdes poem. With arms and legs covered in black paint, Damoah crawls forward on a white canvas, only to be snapped back by an opposing force-resistance bands secured by a towering pillar of concrete.
