David Gumbs is a pluridisciplinary artist from Sint-Martin in the Caribbean whose research focuses on stimulations that build membory in a post-colonial Caribbean Landscape. His interactive video installations investigate identity and belonging in a post-colonial Caribbean landscape.
Through the exploration of Gumbs' random drawings and the use of the overfished Conch shell, "Blossoms" explores the Caribbean islands' vulnerability to global catastrophes. Gumbs' polymorphic art reveals the hybridization process in the collective and individual unconsciousness in Caribbean cultures. Alienation, colonial domination, memory, and the Sacred are themes that emerge throughout the duration of the piece.
