Raksha Parekh Studio Visit for Colonialism: The Collective Unconscious

Born and raised in southern Africa, visual artist Raksha Parekh explores issues of colonialism, slavery and indentured labor.  Her highly conceptual artwork is composed of organic elements which connect the histories of India and Africa.  Raksha combines burnt sugar, raw cotton and wood to create works of art that are full of texture and metaphor.  This studio visit with Raksha was conducted and photographed by Lili Bernard on August 30, 2011, for the curating of Colonialism: The Collective Unconscious.
