The Sacred Star of Isis and Other Stories

Museum of the African Diaspora

MOAD presents a photography exhibition by Adama Delphine Fawundu

As the only child in her immediate family born in America, Fawundu’s mixed media photographic works explore the tension between her family’s traditional Mende beliefs (Sierra Leone) and Westernized values. By incorporating ancestral gifts of colorful handmade batik fabrics and layering these complex and distorted histories, her work uncovers personal and universal cultural patterns that are present within herself and the African Diaspora.
