Centered on two figures bicycling alongside a body of water, Li Dous Konsa captures a serene, quotidian moment in time, as a way of challenging centuries-old, negative depictions of Black people around the world. One of the figure’s hair glides through the wind as the couple cruises through a grassy field lined with yellow and white flowers, in a deliberately carefree manner intended to highlight positive histories of the global African diaspora. In an homage to the Haitian song that this work borrows its title from, the other figure dons a blue, red, and white outfit that mirrors the colors of the Caribbean nation’s flag.
