White, Brown, Yellow.
White, Brown, Yellow, is a performance that exists across video, spoken-word and installation. It poses the idea that one's hybrid identity can serve as a useful tool for deconstructing rigid labels that create and maintain social inequalities. In using the two different physical identities that she is generally associated with, this recorded performance aims to fight the perception that racial identity is monolithic.
Leafy Ritual belongs to the body of work Lost Without You;
A series of rituals that are performed and recorded in both, private and public settings. Blindfolded, drenched in water or covered with banana leaves, these performances play on the idea of self-guidance. The work aims to highlight the awkwardness and conflict one can feel when encountering one’s heritage without a rite of passage.
