Description

In Kongo culture, fetish figures called Nkondi were used to intercede with the gods. Some Nkondi were depictions of women. Nails were driven into the figure to activate the spirit energy stored within. My fetish is a plea to end the physio-verbal-video-sexual violence against our women. Quilted flames invoke Kali, the goddess who destroys the old order to make space for new growth. Peaches is one of Nina Simone’s “Four Women”, a real angry sista, kinda like me.
