Artist Statement
Questioning the intersections of collective history, memory, and identity has been an ongoing investigation in my work. Through video, performance, installation, and drawing, I am invested in exploring the dislocation and malleability of time and space in the transnational diasporic subject.  I strive for the work to contemplate the space where this subject exists as well as to provide a ground for articulation.
