Exorcism, 2019

Pioneering a new style of vodou flag, Myrlande Constant creates ornate and densely-beaded works that are often much larger and more intricate than traditional flags, overflowing with symbols and images that create mythical visual narratives. Voudou flags are historically known for their ceremonial function but Myrlande’s flags transcend into the realm of contemporary painting.

Myrlande Constant was born in 1968. She lives and works in Haiti.
