Bundlehouse: Ancient Future Memory

Presented by CulturalDC, Bundlehouse: Ancient Future Memory is a mobile art gallery by artist Nyugen E. Smith. This exhibit builds on Smith’s ongoing "Bundlehouse" series, which uses found-objects to represent the layered identities of Black African diasporic descendants and the forced migration or rehousing (physical & spiritual) of the African diaspora. Through collage and assemblage, Ancient Future Memory references the items and memories collected through this transition. He assigns value to everyday objects, creating spiritual totems and invented maps to reveal universal truths of transition and trauma. Smith has created these works through meditative, repetitive acts: cutting, sewing, hammering, and collaging.
