Our identities form the basis of our lives. Who am I? Where do I come from? What and who do I identify with? Without answers to these questions, individuals, families and cultures lose their essence and their meaning. Hence, the exploration of identity is pivotal in my work. Reviving a culture and art which has been both ignored and at times denigrated in the Western hemisphere, the exhibition entitled ‘identity’ depicts the various components of my Arabic and Islamic history which construct my own identity. Touching on the theoretical and the concrete, this exhibition displays both what identity is (religion, culture, history) and how it is portrayed (through craft making and art) by using different mediums and mixing differing artistic styles.
