2 by 4s, wood panels, dear head, bed, pillows, bed cover, 35 mm photographs, newspaper clipping, television monitor with 5 min. 32 sec. Video, Donning playing on a VHS tape, and a table covered with fabric.
In this installation I played with Canadian stereotypes with an immigrant’s life in Canada. Here I constructed a structure that resembles a log cabin and decorated the cabin with family photographs in Canada and South Asia and personal items from India and Pakistan. Inside the room is a video, Donning, playing. It was filmed partly inside the room and partly against a green screen.
