Homodryer

As a child I was told stories by my elders and I consequently developed a passion for telling my own stories through my performance art. I focus on an interdisciplinary artistic mode of creation by using the body as a means to communicate personal truths which consequently explore themes relevant to society as a whole.Homodryer is therefore a personal story.

This work is sadly inspired by the passing of my second mother, our domestic worker. The societal pressure on her to conceal her HIV/Aids status resulted not only in her early death, but also the infection of her unborn child. I want to confront the stereotypes associated with HIV/Aids by exploring her story through my own body.
