Artist Statement

As an artist, I seek to forge a dialogue with the spectator via my works, open the spectator to his/her own self. Even though my works are extremely intimate in their subject matter, they become portals of introspection for the spectator. They enable a process of interior expansion, a dive into the self and most importantly it engages and appeals to all human senses like touch, smell, hearing, etc, making my conceptually drawn works purely sensory at times. I question and investigate the credibility of social structures, patriarchy, history, gender and race bias and archaic rituals and beliefs. My choice of medium is video, performance and installation. I employ my body as a tool to enunciate my thoughts and reviews, making the works more like a personal dialogue with the viewer.
