Artist Statement

Born in the Gulf to parents who were migrant workers, my lived experience has confronted me with the way people, places, objects and experiences are bordered. This, inspires aspects of my artistic practice in which I question how borders are enacted through processes of categorization, securitization, censorship and control.

Oscillating between the gallery and the public sphere, I create situations that actively engage the viewer. With mediums that range from manipulated found objects to performance, installation and new media, I experiment with the pedagogical possibilities of art in undoing colonial borders, citizenships and illegalities.
