Ja’Tovia Gary: Giverny I (NÉGRESSE IMPÉRIALE)

Ja’Tovia Gary’s Giverny I (NÉGRESSE IMPÉRIALE) film installation re-contextualizes archival images by combining documentary elements and direct animation, connecting the artist’s everyday experience as a Black woman with art history. By contrasting the luxury of Claude Monet’s historic gardens with the vulnerability of her own body, Gary shows how connections between colonialism, state violence, and media shape visual perception: how we see, experience, and understand the visual world.
