Developed during her residency at V.O Curations, ‘Economy of the Dust’ will present a series of new works, which draw from the artist’s personal experience of growing up in Luanda — speaking to the social and economic landscape of the city, and reflecting upon its accidental gifts.

Sandra Poulson (b. 1995, Lisbon) is an Angolan artist who lives and works between London and Luanda. Poulson’s work discusses the political, cultural and socio-economic landscape of Angola as a case study to analyse the relationship between history, oral tradition and global structures. Her practice utilises inherited societal memory from colonial Angola and the civil war to dismantle contemporary narratives through semiotic and archaeological studies of ordinary objects as actors in ongoing transformations, which inherently draws the questions posed by the work to the task of decoloniality.
