A new and monumental photographic installation by Kara Springer, a visual artist and industrial designer of Bajan and Jamaican heritage, features a selection of photographs taken in Fox Hill, Nassau, a historic site founded in the early 1800s by liberated Africans in The Bahamas. Fox Hill is said to be the last village to receive news of emancipation from bondage for Africans in the British Caribbean, ten days after the initial decree of freedom in 1834. This latest exhibition of Springer’s work presents large photographic prints in sculptural mass that occupy the gallery floor. Taken in a churchyard in the town of Fox Hill, the series of images shown in repetition offer space for a closer contemplation of the precarious nature of transition, of faith, and of building towards freedom. Springer, who received an MFA from Tyler School of Art, currently lives and works in New York City.
