The word swarm may elicit uncomfortable thoughts of hornets or wasps converging on a target. Contemporary Haitian artist Didier William and Nestor Armando Gil, of Cuban descent, similarly train their sights on concepts of colonialism, in order to disarm them. Their mixed-media work—which combines printmaking, painting, collage, sculpture and installation—explores historical narratives of diaspora and dislocation.
