Description

Bittersweet is a collage representing both the motherland and Scarborough, Ontario. It considers memory using photographs, maps, language, and folklore as well as collective memory. Bringing together definitions, recipes, cartography, photo albums, and oral stories, it meditates on themes of obscured history, theft, time, and liminality. The poems journey from Toronto to Guyana to India, and Scarborough remains omnipresent, a place much like Guyana, with a mix of races and a strong, active, and boisterous youthful presence.
