Palestinian Wildlife Series appropriates footage from a nature program on African Wildlife
- shot from a television set in Palestine -
to reflect on parallel issues of mediation, displacement
and extinction in relation to its subjects. 

Rather than a metaphor through which to think about various humans as animals-
Palestinian Wildlife Series reflects on colonial devastation across animal, plant and human life.

slide projector + video

Combining  family archives with ecological records,
The Pan-African Asian Women’s Organization,
Cairo - Conakry 1960 - 1965 reflects on a women’s
organization, of the same name, co-counded by the artists’
maternal grandmother, at a time of widespread movements
for independence in Africa and Asia.

In this moving image, part of a scene entitled “Families of
Assassinated Leaders”, we see a sampling of the minerals and
animal life extracted by Belgians in the Congo between
1898 and 1961, including that Uranium sold to the U.S.’s
Manhattan project, to make the world’s first atomic bomb.
