Where Am I from?

Natural pigment on fabric, 160*300cm, 10.2019

“Where am I from, Mum?” is a common question in ‘De Mens’ world. When I was a kid, I always asked my mum, but, she didn’t know how to answer the question well. During that time, she gave me three answers: 

1, I accidentally found you in a tub floating on the river when I was washing clothes there. 

2, You came out from my armpit by biting through it. 

3, You jumped out from the hole of mud bricks wall.

I create the pigments from herbs and soil in a transitional way which I learnt when I was a kid.
