Statement


In challenging power structure, I focus on I kroywara I.

I have devised this concept for I walk with you, you walk with I, as imaginary to encounter others for manifestation of magic in pursuit of altering violence. This process can lead to emotional and ethical tension. However, I believe that performing within the context of communal and local knowledge transforms these tensions into strength. 

Koiwara is a ritual performed by mothers and children. This term is used for agricultural technologies of an indigenous community in the Caribbean, known as Kali’na. After moshiro – preparation by men in the whole community – each Kali’na family proceeds with koiwara: the re-burning of wood piles that are insufficiently burned.

My practice specifically identifies with koiwara’s significance to nature, culture, and networks.
