Felisha Carenage

Felisha Carenage uses cultural commodities in painting, installations and performances to explore ambiguities in desire and belonging.

Her postgraduate research, HEIMATSCHUTZ, examined ethics and aesthetics of empire in Schleswig-Holstein’s harbour cities. Drawing Breath (formerly Parade Créole), an illustration and garment project, began as an exploration of gendered and racialised violence in public and private space; its latest iteration looks at mental health care systems' prescriptive language in Germany, the Caribbean and the UK.

These and other works’ development is in dialogue with initiatives for civic engagement, art and design archives and participative institutional spaces.
