a love letter to the Nightingale is a multisensory poem exploring the fragility and elusiveness of place and experience, capturing the poignancy of memory and association integral to the understanding of loss or displacement. Through fragmented and poetic imagery, the artist highlights the paradox of survival and healing, inviting a critical discussion surrounding empathy, trust, custodianship, compassion, and social change. The artist engaged in an extensive period of reflective and collaborative practice with the community to create this body of work.
“The new age will be an age less masculine and more permeated with the feminine ideals.“ – ‘Abdu’l-Bahá
