In this body of work, specifically created for Atlanta, Audrey interrogates the tension between conserving culture and ensuring its evolution through fluid interaction with global influences. While centered on a contemporary backdrop, Audrey’s art also emerges very much from a place of nostalgia. It celebrates the ancient living cultures so evident in cities across the African Diaspora such as Dakar, Senegal. In just the same way a griot/storyteller interprets what is going on in the here and now while grounding it in history and tradition, Audrey’s work shouts loudly of a rich, complex and many-layered history holding its own within an absolutely ultra contemporary modernity.
