Inbuild identities

3:52 sec | UAE | 2020

Most of my work deals largely with displacement, questioning our social ethos and identities that anchors us during the fluctuations of place, language, and ideology that we experience throughout our life. 

 

In this performance I am sitting in a meditative posture looking through the mirror and trying to find reflections of my inner identity on my physical appearance. I find myself incomplete, and my state of mind points me to draw a caution mask on my face. The mask depicts an invisible inbuilt identity of the migrants. That’s how the masses look at them. My performance is a protest against all such judgmental behaviors.
