Personal Statement

I am an artist and an activist interested in social and political issues, social justice and human rights. My main matter of interest is how my practice as an artist and an activist is going to make an actual difference in people’s lives and in the society on the ground.  Through my work I attempt to question and explore my place in the world from a social and political point of view by creating performative interventions that take place in a defined space. I am interested in building environments and creating situations that induce a specific emotional state in the audience by prompting it to observe, question and participate. I am using sculpture, textile and printmaking based techniques and processes to create installations and site specific pieces that put the audience and its experience to the centre of the attention. My work is being informed by my practice both as an artist and as a dancer-performer.
