Binding Project is
an ongoing multi-disciplinary project that engages with the
psychological and social implications of the story of the Aqedah (the sacrifice
of Isaac by Abraham). Core to this engagement is an exploration of the complex
traversing of space as an artist and a mother - distance is required as observer/artist
and closeness needed as a mother in relation to my son.
iteration, an installation, The Binding, was exhibited in 2010. This
installation is now in the collection of the Smithsonian National Museum of
African Art. Working collaboratively with other artists and writers, additional
elements to the project have been developed in conversation with the original
installation. The project now includes video footage, an academic essay, short
stories, limited edition Artist’s Books, relief sculptures, and the latest
editions to the project, an ultra-violet digital print, and an original musical
score for the video component of the project.
I am excited to bring these additional aspects of this multi-disciplinary project together for the first time at 54 The Valley Road. Opening on the 13th of April 2024.“
