My practice explores the location of the body within sociopolitical landscapes. Supporting and participating in grass-roots struggles for liberation and self-determination inform the work. Simple materials considered through location, history, and stored energy embody my philosophic aesthetic concerns. Investigating unsettled spaces of resistance, resilience, and reconfiguration while negotiating the colonizing effects of grief, anger, failure, and longing agitate my practice. Situated between the "East" and "West," my work grapples with the in-between. My practice is conceptual and expressed through a variety of mediums, oftentimes incorporating text and improvisation.
