Cara Nahaul’s practice investigates the entangled roles of representation, subjectivity and memory. In a constant effort to define and negotiate who she is in relation to her cultural background and present location, she is interested in how does one begin to speak about who they are and where they are from without conforming to a certain expectation or stereotype. Her most recent work challenges the reading of certain symbols and signifiers, in particular towards the tropical, and what makes something exotic. Using colour as a means to explore the concept of travel, she hopes to convey an experience that is not only visual, but also one that denotes texture, sound or even climate.
