The Binding Project

The 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.

The first 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.“
