Bright Dynasty (2020) is a performance installation and exhibition developed from independent research supported by a Jerwood Bursary, and produced with support from Kunstraum, London.
“This is very personal. I feel deeply unknown and uninvited by the history and narratives about who it is that I might be; what it is that I am here for; and why it is that I stay. I go somewhere, I bring things back with me. Essential travel to an essential nature.
In the exhaustion, fear, and uncertainty: luminosity; radiating, intermingling forces; a healing lotion.
A family of passing and gathering orbits and constellations devolve cultivated varieties of colonialism – its tactics, fixations, and hierarchical taxonomies. And observe and penetrate material and spiritual relations – mutable and agile – of the human in the cosmos, and the cosmos about the human”.
