Your History Makes Me So Horny, 2011

These series depict the objectification and stereotyping of the black female body, while historically it is almost completely ignored. Within the colonial regime, there were only two types of discourses on the naked African body namely the anthropological and social suppressed which often was accompanied by systematic violence.
Photographs from a hardcore contemporary porn magazine are worked up with images from West European history books. Cutting holes in the bodies of black women and filling those holes with historical images from these books, is a way of reclaiming a space in history for black women. (text: Patricia Kaersenhout)
