This is just an overview of my work for the degree show.
I have made a video Triptych, shown on 3 old TV monitor’s inside an installation.The Installation and the arrangement represents a domestic space.
I am paying homage to my performance art, the stereotypes/dismissiveness associated with being a South Asian female inside art intuitions, and combing my experiences of racism in school’s, while growing-up in the 1980’s.
The video triptych shows me performing, then completely disappearing from view.
The Indian music played is a cabaret song, about betrayal. The Indian film scene’s are of dancing girls taking revenge by shooting a man in the audience, who has a position of authority.
Also, there are 3 additional handmade drawings that go along with the main work. The subject is myself in performance, within a surreal environment, purging my personal thoughts.
I have combined the old with the new and death with rebirth/freedom.
