David Gumbs is a pluridisciplinary artist from Sint-Martin in the Caribbean.
His interactive video installations investigate identity and belonging in a post-colonial Caribbean landscape, as well as the Caribbean islands vulnerability to global catastrophes through the exploration of his random drawings and the use of the overfished Conch shell. His 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.
His research focuses on stimulations that build memory in a post-colonial Caribbean Landscape."
