This installation is an immersive experience interconnecting personal narratives, histories, experiences, and imaginaries as a form of catharsis for the poet and the viewer. Featuring poems screen printed on canvas hanging from laundry lines, the installation will also include tailored public facing performances that explores issues around womanhood, sexual and gender violence, feminine agency, healing and reimagination.
The hanging poems tell many personal stories for the viewer to experience whilst walking through the space, a physical representation of the metaphor “hanging your dirty laundry in public”.

So i have no qualms admitting that i am an emotional cry baby. Well i tell myself crying is cathartic but i must admit the people i met on this show broke me to pieces. It’s so easy to become desensitised, jaded and ultimately numb living in this society and every now and again […]
So i finally decided to start a video blog on my youtube channel after much pressing and prodding from friends and supporters of my work. I will admit, i was a bit apprehensive because i didn’t want to feel like i was recording a vlog just for the sake of it. So it has […]
