IDENTITY (2022) is a mixed medium videography piece consisting of Performance Art and Painting. It explores the alternative body of a person through the negative space created from the human body. In this performative piece, negative space is explored through clothing, with the context of garments we wear being one of the first steps taken to represent ourselves and the roles we play in our lifetime. As human beings, we mentally shape ourselves unknowingly through the clothes we choose to put on, and take on various roles whilst wearing them.


Do we find our sense of IDENTITY through the roles we play, or do we find ourselves outside of them?
