Artist Explores the Concept of Dual Identities in Series of Textile Portraits

Margherita Cole for My Modern Met
Moving to a new country can be invigorating and isolating all at once. When Bahamian artist Gio Swaby relocated to Canada, she found herself presenting a different version of herself compared to back home. Her new exhibition I Will Blossom Anyway explores the concept of dual identities experienced by immigrants with a series of self-portraits and a grid work of nine silhouettes.
