Being British Asian - My Three Selves, 2017
NOT FOR SALE
Race is embodied, lived and put into motion in everyday encounters. My three selves is a 3D autoethnography presenting my direct experience of being and doing British Asian. I did not set out to make an autobiographical piece of work. However, my initial exploration of identity as a mode of ‘enclosure’ brought about flashes of memory, particular incidents, emotions, triggering further feelings and recollections of everyday events, recurring statements and habitual behaviours. These are reflected in the three compositions above and the three sculptures.
