Cozier All That's Left

 

We are pleased to announce a new edition by Christopher Cozier, All That’s Left. A new suite of 8 prints which investigates the paradox of fading histories and the promise of a new era. Born in Trinidad, Christopher Cozier explores post-colonial transition into statehood, referencing not only the period after independence in the Caribbean, but also the situation of existing in between cultures, histories, and futures. Alluding to the visual vocabulary and the intimate scale of his drawings from Tropical Night, which is an expanding installation of drawings he started in 2006, Cozier reflects on emptied spaces and the reduction of landscapes imbued with history and memory to the exchange of real estate. Alongside these images of vacant lots, Cozier suggests an alternative ground for memory in the musical scores of 1950s calypso and the durability of history in the Haitian gourde coin, which presents the silhouettes of the four heroes of the Haitian revolution despite its worn-down surface. While meditating on the past, this series captures the duality in the tragic and empowering possibility of sovereignty.

All That’s Left is a suite of eight individual ten-color silkscreen prints, measuring 7 inches x 9 inches each. The edition size is 30, with 8 APs, 3 PPs, and 1 BAT. The prints are sold as a set and individually.
