I’m currently in Italy having an art residency at the beautiful Palazzo Monti. I have been working here on a new project called ‘Eleutherophobia – fear of freedom’. The project is exploring concept of a new human identity which I believe we desperately need to be able to progress as a humankind. I realised that identity focused around ideology and differences not only hasn’t been serving us as individuals but also has been continuously bringing more divisions and polarisation among all communities. Perhaps it’s time to consider replacing this identity by lived experience and joined aspiration as a humanity. It is very clear to me that there is a failure of the human project to give individuals access to the context and tools they need to actualise their full potential. Through my new body of work I would like to challenge us all with the question what does it really mean to be free. The project will include a series of photographs, film and performance ‘In the name of the Mother, and of the Daughter, and of the Holy Spirit’.
