My artistic praxis reflects my intellectual inquiries into a complex framework of social, political, economic, and environmental processes, at times entwined in landscape archaeology and historical ecology. Cultivated through archival and field research into specific locales, my projects excavate layers of history to unpack conflict, geopolitical partitioning, spatial transformation, environmental disaster, forced displacement and migration, across time and terrain. My work strives to create interventions into the narrative produced through statecraft or is dominant in the public sphere, with people’s histories and memories. I believe acts of remembrance work through and call for accountability of historical injustices, generating hope and setting the course of action for better future.
