• The persistent moving of home and studio from London to Cairo, has informed my practice, highlighting the significance of spatial and cultural temporalities and the ephemeral nature of our bodies, of art and of matter. 

     

    Through painting, textile design and installation art, I explore issues of cultural mobility, displacement and the aesthetics of migration. The textiles and locally-sourced dyes embody an ecology of migration and the material identity of its history. Through my re-interpretation of traditional craftmanship, the labour-intensive and intimate engagement with the fabric animates its agency and the social and inherent dynamism of materiality. 

     

    My practice takes shape through a continuous process of making and unmaking, where everything is fragmentary and evolving. Utilising cultural motifs, found images and historical narratives, I challenge ideas of identity formation and its volatile narratives of time, place and belonging.
