Over het boek
ÉLAN I am a North American Interdisciplinary Assemblage Visual Artist. My works are grounded in the domestic, historical imagery and personal narrative. My artwork tends to begin with the deconstruction of prior knowledge concluding my investigation with a fusion of home, material histories an redefinition. Balancing the intersectionality that exists as a woman of many ethnic, racial and cultural backgrounds I'm constantly looking to my personal history to better understand myself and the world. I like to constantly re-invent myself with each project series that I take on. I use various formats of presentation: video, poetry, storytelling, artifacts, print media, photography, sculpture, drawing, painting, illustrations and installation. The presentation may differ but remain in constant conversation with each other.
