Mona Kamal: Journeys
MONA KAMAL’s new body of work investigates themes of deconstruction and rebirth. She utilizes objects from nature, her personal surrounding and artifacts that she has collected over time to reference her childhood memories as well as familial stories. In an installation that evokes the quilt-like structure of memory-making, Kamal juxtaposes materials gathered in India, such as red sand and textiles, to address ideas echoed in the cycle of life.
