We finally arrived back in The Gambia to carry on working on our long-term project – ‘Gambia – Victims, and Resisters of a Regime‘. The Truth, Reconciliation and Reparations Commission (TRRC) is in full swing, and the searching for truth – and the bodies of those loved ones, who ‘disappeared‘ under the former, 22-year reign, of Yahya Jammeh – has begun.
Our families need closure…
For the past two years, we have been making portraits and filming testimonies of those who suffered, those who lost family members, and those who fought against Jammeh’s brutal autocratic rule.
With huge gratitude to the Gambia Centre for Victims of Human Rights Violations, who we have been collaborating with over the last few months, we will also be holding the first exhibition of this work, in The Gambia, early March 2019. More news, on that, to follow soon. It’s been some time since we last exhibited in the Gambia so we are honored and excited to be able to, once again, to show our work.
Thanks for stopping by!
