Artist Statement

I delve into the intricate tapestry of migration bodies and borderlands, aiming to illuminate not only our interactions and responses with our environment but also the shared narrative of marginalized communities particularly those of people of color. Through a fusion of diverse materials, including different clay bodies, I confront and address the multifaceted challenges of legitimacy, accessibility and inclusivity within the framework of public spaces using the assemblage of discarded bicycle parts, deconstructed and revamped into a shared space, capable of a collective cultural industrialization expounding on individual and multicultural identities. The incorporation of Ghanaian cultural trade beads and patterns, serves as both my cultural anchor and a means of navigating the complex web of migration across the diaspora which is a profound way of representation and a commitment for collective reflections.

Each piece in my body of work becomes a celebration of individual and cultural resilience, showcasing the vibrant contribution of migrant communities and affirming the identities of people of color within the broader cultural “Earthscape”. As I navigate the fluid terrain of identity and belonging, I embrace the concept of the ”floating body” as a metaphor for agency and resilience.
