Inventory | CV 

I am a trans-disciplinary artist who employs drawing, performance, and sculpture to create conceptual work that explores how notions of identity are disrupted by migration—particularly migration as an unfinished arc of motion whose final resting point remains an open-ended question. I situate my work in the liminal space between early culture shock and final acclimatization. My creative process begins through the interrogation of my own (racialized as black, gendered as man) body, and the personal memories that are embedded within it. I use this archive as my entry point into collective political interrogations, with one of my current interests being the idea of ritual and how ritual—or the absence thereof—maps out ways of performing, experiencing, and feeling masculinity, race, and place (or placelessness).
