My practice is an exploration and development of my emotional, mental and physical attachments to my Punjabi heritage and culture and ever-expanding understanding of Sikh faith, with the guidance and support of my Budimom and Baba Ji (paternal grandparents). This is documented in varied approaches to actualising works, with photography, film, installation and participation being the main processes. I endeavour to develop works where I have incorporated traditional household items, Punjabi foods and the concept of ‘langar’ (a community kitchen and/or dining hall usually found in Sikh Gurdwaras all over the world) paired with the ideologies of ‘seva’ (selfless service, providing and caring for others as if they were your own, without preconceptions or prejudices) are hugely present in my current practice and general day-to-day mentality.
