Edouard Duval-Carrié opened his Miami studio in Ep53. I discussed the exploration of black consciousness in his recent work, his transition from Haiti to the U.S, and how past experiences in Haiti, France, and Miami influence his work today.
Edouard also discussed a few of his most significant installations around the world and much, much more. Duval-Carrié’s art reflects the culture and history of Haiti with references to the Vodou religion. His work is often overtly political, executed in attempts to embody his nation’s spirit and its troubles with an attitude that is neither detached nor ironic.
New York University classified his output as magical realism for an event to accompany the book launch of Continental Shifts: The Art of Edouard Duval-Carrié, which was published by the university’s press. He operates in a variety of media: altarpieces, lacquered tiles, and reliquaries in addition to painting and sculpture.
