Black Melancholy looks at how, despite the trauma they experienced, many of these women had to continue living with their abusers. The artist interrogates what it is abou the black female body and mind which, despite trauma, continues to thrive. Is she truly living, or is she in constant melancholy as she exists in the aftermath of colonialism, civil war and betrayal? Is negotiating trauma realising that your abuser is possibly part the bigger of cycle of abuse
