Local artist and writer, Carletta Carrington Wilson’s series of mixed-media collage layers text, textile and symbols of silence, bodies, and bondage to honor the unheard voices of the enslaved.
Wilson’s work explores the silence of slavery and the power of cloth to reveal what was previously concealed. With her intentionally significant use of language through found text, fabric and other materials, Wilson’s altered books tell stories that have been left absent from the accounts of Transatlantic slave trade survival.
