(10) The Voodoo

This project seeks to re-inscribe and re-activate the power of the four little Os in the word voodoo. That's how they spell it. The performance entails cross-stitching numerous historical references of this word, in red and in various sizes, on a dress that once belonged to my mother and late grandmother.


Gina Athena Ulysse is currently developing her avant-garde meditation, VooDooDoll, What If Haiti Were a Woman, On ti Travay sou 21 Pwen. She is the author of Downtown Ladies (Chicago 2008) and Why Haiti Needs New Narratives. She is an Associate Professor of Anthropology at Wesleyan University.
