I am a visual artist working with documentary and experimental practices in video art and installation.
My practice is an exploration of the mechanisms of exclusion and marginalization, questioning agency, representation and authorship, while addressing systems of delimitation associated with assertions of power and identity. In my work, the traditional codes of documentary practice appear both expanded and undermined, employing them as vehicles for a critique of our embodied social memory and collective experience.
I am interested in the entanglement between material culture, landscape and identity seen through the lenses of postcolonialism, critical theory and cultural geography. My work intersects community-based research with site-specific practices, constructing situations of dialogue, debate and commemoration in order to reflect about the nature of political art.
Currently, a Faculty of Fine Arts Fellow in the Humanities Doctoral Program in the Centre for Interdisciplinary Studies in Society and Culture at Concordia University.
