Music by DJ Gonzalo Silva.

“Mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) is the remnant that connects humanity. Research published in 1987, says ONE common African female ancestor links all people together. Scientists named her Mitochondrial Eve, because mtDNA is inherited only through the mother’s ovum.

I am endlessly fascinated by this fact. And how it might account for familiar strands of spirit and culture woven into communities I visit. Colors, patterns, rhythms, food, style, unspoken vibrations. Remind me that I belong to a very rich inventive cultural dialogue. My focus in this exhibition is to celebrate the familiar. The root… Some of the many common remnants that continue to dance themselves from and around the family tree.”
