Merik Goma: My Heart is Light in the Void

During his artist residency at The Amistad Center for Art & Culture, while he was looking through the photos in the collection, Goma says he was moved by the moments of joy and aspiration he saw in the photos’ objects.

“Through this window into the past, I saw the generational vastness of the Black diaspora and was inspired by everyday life. There and then, I found the inspiration for the series My Heart is Light in the Void, ” he shares.
