I am a New York-based artist who sees bodies as constantly subject to volatile social environments globally and most notably within capitalist-driven societies such as the United States. Volatility creates a need for me to create self-censorship and secretive environments. My lived experience has me working against being surveillanced and othered, it internalizes these issues of exile and kinship that are shaped by economic, pop cultural, and social situations. These are lessons that turn into motives of obscurity and lead me to a careful deployment of material and linguistic shifts. The use of fashion, photography, textiles, music, sculpture, and performance manifest my native femme Muslim American experience, a legacy for my aesthetic concealment.
