What if I, for one, have things to say that I want the world to read?
The most important project I have made to-date, Baney Clay: An Unearthed Identity, was launched in April, online.
What seemed like a downer at first, then turned into the best show I have had so far. It being online, helped the work reach a wider audience, I was invited to give a talk online and made a lot of new connections. More importantly, as a project filled with personal reflections upon myself, my background and our culture, I started writing and writing about it from many different angles. I got in touch with magazines to get the work published and as a result I was invited by more magazines to keep writing about it. I was finally heading to a place where I had been wanting to be for a while, writing at last to make my work more complete. All thanks to the pandemic and all this new time.
