KHAREEJ No. 3
My practice mobilizes methods that open up alternative realities and confront convention, attempting to challenge common approaches to “original” content and looking into how parallel contrasting realities often exist simultaneously. My interactions with multiple cultures and geographies bring me to question the notion of absolute truth and lead me to explore the role of past narrativization as it shapes the future. These interventions range from linguistics and semiotics, social dynamics and ethics, to media studies and oral histories. Through each project, I engage in sociological and techno-political discourses to understand hegemony within different power structures. Additionally, my personal encounters with sociopolitical situations and interdisciplinary interest in literature, translation, sound, oral history, and theatre bring me to an audio-visual practice.
KHAREEJ No. 3 will feature a mixed media sound and text digital installation, and an artist talk.

About Canadian Spotlight
Every year, Reel Asian chooses to spotlight a Canadian filmmaker to showcase local talent and activate their work as part of festival programming, with screenings of the artist’s choice and deep-dive artist talks. This year, with the festival’s move to a digital platform, we are taking the opportunity to introduce innovative, non-traditional, experiential programming made with digital presentation and engagement in mind. Through the Canadian Spotlight, we hope to amplify artistic voices, support sustained engagement with interdisciplinary creative practices, and introduce new audiences to dynamic, contemporary media work.
