 ​Algerian-British artist who uses embodiment, ritual and archival research to share untold stories that create waymarkers for the diasporic journey of homecoming. This encompasses both the tangible and intangible memories held in species, landscapes and people. I ritualise and remember our collective past, building upon it to imagine alternative futures.
Storytelling is an act of subversion for me - history is often told by those in a position to do so or has been actively erased. I was born of survivors, healers, shapeshifters and fighters who have kept our stories alive despite experiencing this erasure. I am compelled to honour and celebrate this inherited voice of resistance through my work and life. I’m also driven by a desire to find meeting points between the cultures and languages I live amongst.

I have worked with, AzeemaDardishiAWANShado Magazine and Vittles. I'm a permanent studio resident at Pervasive Media Studios in Bristol.

I publish a free monthly newsletter - The 99 Names of Allah - exploring notions of home and homecoming through the path of the divine. You can sign up here.

Everything that has come before me has made this expression possible. With thanks to Allah, my beloveds and ancestors.
