With his painting and sculpture, Duval Carrié creates mise-en-scène in which viewers become vicarious participants in four acts of the transatlantic drama of violation of sovereignties and identities: act 1, the destruction of the Caribbean environment and its indigenous people; act 2, the slave trade; act 3, the slave uprising that created Haiti; and act 4, the “endless migration” of post-occupation diaspora that continues into the present as an unfinished environmental and social revolution.
