Xodo 2008

Eu So Quero Um Xodo loosely translated from Portuguese means I only want a love. Xodo is a traditional Brazilian country love song. I learnt of this song through my father, who sings it beautifully. In this series of self portrait works I play the role of a Mulatta, both highly desired and scorned. She lives between two worlds, both master and slave. Her defiant and questioning gaze reinforce her status as a rebel and a threat to the established order. Can a woman like this find real love?
