Reynold Clerisier

Reynold Clérisier is a Haitian artist who learned sequin art from the masters and then departed to represent broader themes of Haitian culture. A main theme of his work tends to be animal interactions as seen through artistic eyes. Clérisier’s work is a dazzling application of the sequined art medium to universal themes."

Vladimir Cybil Charlier

After a process of joint ideation for a new piece, Clyatt sculpts a streamlined head-and-shoulders bust following traditional European forms. Drawing on one of her signature series, the "Pantéon," Cybil then contextualizes the piece with cultural markers, ornamentation, hair and more, drawing on diverse influences. The resulting piece retraces some of the transformations in venerated archetypes of the Haitian pantheon, such as Erzulie, the goddess of Love. The process provides the artists a sort of laboratory, a place for palpating historical narratives, producing cultural mashups, practicing living with how that feels
