As an immigrant who has dived into different cultures, my artwork relates to the essence of who we are, where we have come from, and where we are journeying. This approach is a powerful facilitator of culture, identity, and growth.
My current body of work explores the relationship between place and identity. Using psychogeography as a field to inform my work, I focus on the idea that identity forms by giving specific cultural believes and emotional meanings to space. I see it as an experience created by the setting combined with what a person brings to it. Mobility implies self-redefinition in relation to a place of arrival. Since my life has been marked by mobility, I have emotional and cultural attachments to multiple places and cultures and therefore distinct identities associated with each place. In my work, I navigate the boundaries between homelessness and origin, dislocation and belonging, culture and place.
