Healing disconnection through untold stories, ritual and speculative futures

​Through a combination of interviews, archival research and self-exploration, I share stories that create opportunities for healing losses experienced by the diaspora. This encompasses memories of and held by landscapes, species, and bodies. I build on these collective stories of the past to help us dream and imagine alternative futures.

I have worked with Dardishi, Azeema, ONCA gallery, Shado Magazine and Vittles.

I am part of A.MAL Collective, a curatorial platform of diasporic artists that explore ecology, migration, and post-coloniality through speculative art and research projects.
