ARTIST STATEMENT: In my practice, I try to make social and political struggles visible. My work function as a memorial to collective memory and denounces the problematics of consuming mediated images and narratives. In my work, I try to invite the audience to question the imposing limitation that any discourse of power including hierarchies, terror and surveillance, religion, and state enforce upon nations. As an artist, I am challenged by these concepts and have this opportunity to look past such forms of ethnic, political, and cultural control in order to reflect upon new forms of expression that highlight our struggle to establish an autonomous form of self-expression. I aim to produce a translational understanding of social and political struggles that I have been involved in directly or indirectly.
