Into The Arms of My Colonizer (2016)

16 min 22 secSingle channel / Digital Video / Colour / Sound

"When discussing identity politics I hold very little anxieties about where I am from, I am too busy trying construct who I want to be. This video is an exploration of that construction, employing concepts about the indigene/coloniser hyphen. Believing that the hyphen space could be a performative space of exploration, collaboration, and collage."
