For her solo project at Dimensions Variable, Jamilah Sabur is creating a video installation along with 2-D and sculptural work based on memories of her mother’s childhood home in Jamaica, a colliding history of Simón Bolívar in Jamaica and flooded landscapes. Sabur is haunted by the overlapping residue that defines Latin America and the Caribbean. Sabur describes her work as a ritual of the dislocated with qualities of extreme absurdity and extreme desolation.
Sabur first participated in a performance at DV in 2015 titled Voleur (thief). It was a performance tribute to Marie Vieux Chauvet; where Sabur and artist Andy Robert played a game of mancala over the course of 2-hours, while enacting roles of prisoner and guard.
