DOCUMENTATION OF RESIDENCY AT ARCTIC W/ LA WAYAKA CURRENT

As part of her residency, Anousha created works exploring themes of cultural appropriation and artefacts in the location. Payne worked with indigenous soils, clays and found materials to create impressions of the local flora and used traditional methods working with totuma fruits and local textile techniques. 

Payne created on site installations of her work and filmed interviews and discussions surrounding themes of cultural appropriation from a local leaders perspective. Below are photographs from her experience and documentation of the installation by La Wayaka Current.
