The grant will enable her to produce a number of large-scale works for the show.
“My work investigates integration and belonging, and in particular cultural identity and childhood. Through the exploration of adaption, mimicry and mirroring, I examine different strategies of integration and assimilation. I aim to challenge cultural constraints, acceptability and the rejection of difference. I create ‘barriers’ in the form of doors, curtains, windows or veils, and other symbols of self-protection, such as figures with helmets, claws, armour or chain-mail”.
