In the Company of San Malo is an exhibition of finely detailed lithophanes constructed of cast acrylic. The works are the result of an invitation to collaborate in a project called Le Ker Creolebirthed originally in 2013 by artists Bruce “Sunpie” Barnes and Rachel Breulin. In 2016, through this project Breulin, Barnes and collaborators, Pavy included, re-imagine a Maroon village set at New Orleans’ Music Box. At the center is the legend of Juan San Malo a resistance leader of escaped slaves in 1780’s New Orleans. These Maroons, as they were called, created villages and hidden refuges peppered throughout the bayous.
