Katherine M Toukhy
Brooklyn, NY



ARTIST STATEMENT: I work with materials and interpersonal engagement to give visibility to the herstories I am connected to as a first-generation Egyptian woman in the U.S. I make installations, collage, and paintings grounded in embodied understandings of the female body, migration, and diaspora, against the backdrop of our post 9/11 world. The female form gets abstracted, becoming a hybrid of landscape and figure, that is the site of political personal violence and transformation. In my installations, I layer figures, threads, Arabic and English writing, and transparent fabrics to shape a sensual psychological landscape. Through ongoing interactive research with women in my communities, I have built a small archive of their writings to source from. I remix their writings with my own repeated phrases and sometimes phrases from related media stories, such as the partial list of 30K names of those drowned trying to cross the Mediterranean.
