Amber George & Nubia Yasin

ABOUT
“Living in a Burning House” explores multiple instances where the American Government has failed to show up for the people who live here, be it overt like police brutality or more systemically hidden like the school to warehouse pipeline that permeates cities like ours.

The Sankofa is a Ghanian symbol meaning to “go back for that which you have forgotten so that you may move forward.'' Sankofa, Modern Mysticism explores ideas around trauma and triumph, creating intimate portraits of themselves.
The artists blend folklore and their own stories with elements of African Spiritualism and folks magic in an attempt to grab hold of what has been forgotten so that they, too, may move forward.
