My work confronts the complexity of my migratory history as I have roots in India, Pakistan and Canada with a North African birth. Through the fragments of my known identity I piece together my culture and place of belonging. The result being a constructed space that incorporates many cultures. My artworks represent a literal search of my place within my current locale while taking into consideration my personal as well as my familys history.
I create spaces that represent fragments of homes and identity that have been constructed from threading together memories and imagining an environment that defines my bicultural socialization. From gathering family stories, historical artefacts and through my own personal experience I continuously weave a story of migration, culture, nationalism and belonging.
