The expansive work by Firelei Báez reimagines the ruins of Sans-Souci Palace in Haiti as though they were emerging out of the Atlantic Ocean, with the vastness of the sky and seas evoked by hanging blue tarps and a mural.

In an April 2021 conversation with Art21, Báez likewise addressed the colonial history of the Caribbean.
