Bio:

"Dominique White’s work references the many nautical myths of the diaspora specifically associated with Black death, afterlife and the Kalunga line. Dominique combines her personal experiences of trauma and displacement with afro-pessimist views of the current and questions the sincerity of utopian notions of the future. She constructs artefacts using wood, kaolin, palm leaves and gold leaf which act as mediators between this reality and an alternative utopia.

Recent exhibitions and publications include: In Search of Our Mother's Garden (London, 2017), Our Sweet Souls (London, 2016) and Apogee Journal (New York, 2016). Dominique completed a BA in Fine Art at Goldsmiths in 2015 and she now lives and works in London. "
