This set of videos uses traditional Cokwe forms; the Sona designs. In creating these drawings certain rules must be respected, which take into account the wisdom and the legends of these people. These drawings also respect rules of geometry and mathematics, at the same time that they evoke a strong sense of identity. In this contemporary reading of an ancestral practice, Iris Chocolate pays tribute to Angolan culture and its traditions. (Suzana Sousa, curator)
