I spent almost the entire day with Eugene. Serge and I went downtown around 9:30. We took pictures of Sacre Coeur and St. Trinity.
We then headed over to Eugene’s—ended up staying there for hours.
On the way there I saw Haitian women driving Mack trucks.
I took a bunch of photos of the artists, both adults and children.
Eugene had a lot of questions for me, so I wasn’t the one who was in control of the interview.
Serge told me a crazy story about the Bwa Kayiman never taking place. He says all good houngans know this story—that the name refers to a house in the woods of a woman named Imam.
I got lots of footage of the timoun rezistans making art, discussing art, being art and Eugene guiding them.
Serge had to leave early to teach his dance class. I stayed with Eugene and had a really great conversation with him about art, politics, the Slave Route Project and the politics of art.
