Bloodlines

Bloodlines is about creating artwork as a method of reclaiming, preserving and transforming the role of cultural heritage in my life. By negotiating the physical and spiritual bonds between past and present, I explored familial relationships, the lingering effects of diaspora and how ancestral memories shape the way we exist in the modern world.
