Mona Saeed Kamal

My practice stems from my origins that are rooted in the Indian subcontinent and my migratory up bringing - born in Algeria, raised in Canada and currently residing in New York. I engage in installation and video to create multi-media narratives about migration, journeys, and identities. Through questioning religion, conflict and borders I create stories that directly confront my personal experiences and also the lives of people living in the many cultures that I lay claim to. This is done through gathering family stories and historical artifacts, knowledge of current events both locally and internationally and reading contemporary texts. Through these experiences I continuously weave a story of migration, culture, nationalism and belonging.
