Alexandrian Kite in Michigan Wind (2023)
A diptych projection of two videos, both of the artist as she tries (and repeatedly fails) to fly a red kite on windless Cranbrook fields. This video becomes a study in both commiseration and failure; of the desperation of wanting to belong to a diasporic struggle that is you wish to (but cannot) claim as your own yet failing to anyway. What a tragedy it is to have kites to fly but not be able to fly them. What a tragedy it is to be thread that tangles but never able to knot.
