City of Pilgrims: Indian Mangoes by the Red Sea
Video and text
2017

This video triptych offers moments of devotional interaction between two bodies: human and fruit. Shot in Jeddah, a port city of Saudi Arabia at the confluence of the Red Sea, the work asks questions about trade routes, global flows of migrant laborers, memorialization of demolished structures, and the visual aesthetics of growth and decay in urban environments.
