Of her 2022 Bermuda Biennial entry, she says: “A new vocabulary is in the approach, how we articulate our understanding of what we are experiencing. Our internal dictionary is not limited to word definitions; it includes experiences, images, colours, word-associations, ideas and structures that help us understand ourselves by opening up to the world, the people around us, our social connectivity,
our individual vulnerability.”
