Artist Statement

Where Do I Live? Where Is My Space? is an installation that explores identity and the malleable nature of a home. The piece involves personal items that were gathered from my own home in Surrey, BC and transported to the exhibition. Due to personal circumstances that involve not having a separate space to claim as a studio, my room slowly began to transform itself into the space I needed and became a part of my home. The near cramped space that this installation occupies speaks to the question: how does my personal life influence my works? In my years studying at Emily Carr, I was not able to and elected to not have a studio space within the school or nearby. Because of this, my room where I carried out all my projects became both a home, a studio, a place to sleep, a place to work, a space to relax, and a space to stress. Where Do I Live? Where Is My Space? asks the viewer how studio spaces change and evolve alongside the artist.
