Refuge + Shield
I am a Sea Kréyòl Atakapa Išak artist-researcher + designer and my name is H. Çaca Yvaire.
In 2019, I founded RX Mahomedrui, an artist initiative seeking to produce tools and strategies for navigating climate conflict, building community ecological resiliency, and securing infrastructures of care, justice, fitness, and healing. RX Mahomedrui is tracking visible challenges and invisible opportunities in emergent planetary phenomena, practices, and processes to create and preserve sustainable lifeways for the displaced and the dispossessed on rematriated lands.
Building upon previous fugitive study, interpretations of movement work, and focuses on the ecologies that influence the culture of Terraforming workers. Currently, I am preparing a book about artistic and embodied forms of fugitive planning and rematriation, to advance work that seeks to undo the erasure and slow violence of forced migration.
