How did you get into debt?
Describe your art practice
My work moves between performance, video, and photography. I use my interdisciplinary approach towards critiques on the politics of presence and as an argument for the inclusion of disenfranchised communities in political and social spheres. Ultimately, my aim is to decolonize the world through art. In the work I have submitted, I look at re-enactments not as repetitions of historical events or happenings, but as actions addressing ideas of representation and identity.
Would your work look different if you weren't in debt?:
Yes. The money I pay towards debt could go towards sharing a space where I could put up my work on paper or do more performances on video where set changes are required more often. Although I do these things at home, there is more to juggle. My mental space, work and home, get blurred which leads to stress. It gets difficult to work under stress.
