Her work intersects documentary and memory-construction,
forming a series of complex visual fragments
realised through filmmaking, installation, object-making and
Her practise and visual language,
whilst based on in-depth research into questions about her own past
as well as collective memory within colonial and postcolonial narratives,
remains characteristically speculative, nomadic and estranging.
