Monash Art Design & Architecture

My practice is political in nature, I am a first generation Australian, and my parents are Lebanese and migrated here to escape civil war. This inbetweenness of worlds and cultures informs my practice greatly, and I use this to discuss relevant political issues. I investigate topics of postcolonial and migrant narratives, specifically within the context of my own cultural identity, in relation to contemporary Australian and global society, and current political issues. This includes refugees, racism, otherness, stigma, language, power relations and societal tensions. I work across the mediums of sculpture, installation, video and photography.
