About the work

This “Care” drawing from a series of 98 drawings was presented at the 11th Berlin Biennial in 2020.
This ensemble was part of the installation Barter Zone, which focused on a field of reflection on “affected bodies” and the precariousness of relationships in societal changes between human groups and our environment.
“How does the body fit into a globalised world?
What can we learn from the countries of the South?
Anti-racial and feminist struggles, and those for equal rights and freedoms, should find common ground, as they ultimately stem from the violence of colonial legacies and imperialism, the current markers of global economic, identity and ecological crises.
As reflected in the archipelagic thinking of Édouard Glissant,
Relationships are at the heart of the living process and of all things. It’s what’s left for us to maintain an ecology of well-being, and of thought.
New forms of humanity must be invented.

The auction closes at 9pm (BST) Monday 3rd July, however, if a bid is placed in the last two minutes, the auction end time will extend on that lot for an additional two minutes, or until all bidding has ceased. This is called Popcorn Bidding or Bidder Extension and gives all bidders an equal chance of winning.

Maximum bids

You are more likely to be the winning bidder if at the outset you place a maximum bid i.e. the maximum amount you are willing to pay for the work. Your maximum bid is not visible to other bidders. If another bidder exceeds your maximum bid you will receive an automatic notification. If you have placed a maximum bid the auction site will automatically place bids on your behalf, but only as much is necessary to make sure that you remain the highest bidder, until it reaches your maximum bid. These automatic bids are placed in increments, as shown above.
