In this iteration of the ANTI/body series, the goddess Kali inhabits the trope of Venus rising from the sea – Kali’s black body also references another art historical source: the Voyage of the Sable Venus, a pro-slavery print depicting an enslaved African woman being transported across the Atlantic. Here, Kali is reclaiming her trauma, what is birthed is abundant, nebulous, perhaps a cellular form, perhaps a celestial orb.
