artist statement

In my multimedia site-specific installations, I assemble day-to-day objects into symbolic engaging discoveries as group portraits. I communicate the hopefulness in discarded remains (fabric scraps, Metrocards etc.) of our lives that are often overlooked, forgotten or no longer valuable but they recall the history of their previous breaths and proprietors. This process is inspired by “Sankofa” a symbol which means learning from the past for a prosperous future” I hope that I insinuate greater relationship to our diaries, aspirations, and letdowns in addressing issues of migration, historical, and gender equality.

Intimate and pronounced affairs, and history and new meanings lead the discourse between my art and the audience.
