Essay by Melina Mehr

This mural examines duality, shifting cultural landscapes and existence within diaspora. Specifically, observing how womxn of colour exist in liminal space. Forming new identities using fragmented pieces of past and present, belonging becomes an abstract concept practiced through communal bonds rather than physical spaces. The sense of displacement and loss as a direct result of migration, carries lived and generational trauma. We hold space to admire the womxn embracing new landscapes with gifts and curses from past lives; who take on loss and transmutate it into beauty.

Belonging To Each Other is presented as part of Design TO 2021
