Mona Saeed Kamal
My practice stems from my origins that are rooted in the Indian subcontinent, born in Algeria, raised in Canada and currently residing in New York. I engage in photography, video, and installation to create multi-media narratives about migration, journeys, and identities. 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. Through my installations I am literally trying to find my own place within my current locale while taking into consideration my personal as well as my family’s history.

Through video, photography and installation 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, research and reading I continuously weave a story of migration, culture, nationalism and belonging.
