My Mali is titled Crimson Song, and is created by hand cutting and collaging my collected papers..... Mali's Crimson Song is inspired by the weaving together of the many parts to create one. Just as the colours burst into life from reds to golds, blending and interacting, so to does our world: in our landscapes, our communities and in our selves.
I worked on my Mali with an array of other artists over 4 weeks in the old directors quarters at the Zoo,
it was a great atmosphere and definitely a fun and unusual process, with Mandrills next door, and the resident peacock dropping by....
