Description

Embodying the archetype of the goddess of love in its lover form, Billie Holiday is cast as Erzulie/Ezili. “Billie Zulie” is part of the Pantéon series which reenact both religious and historical narratives as African-American he/sheroes are cast as the various Spirits/Gods of African derived religions of the Caribbean such as Vodou and Santeria. As these religions were historically banned and had to go “underground” both in colonial and post-colonial societies, mass-produced images of saints were used as a decoy to represent the various Gods, a practice that is still alive today. (Print 18 and 19 of 21, unframed)
