The fabrics used in the piece were collected from migrant women with the aim to spotlight their experience, as a practice of healing or patching. In While Traversing, the analog practice of sewing configures a speculative mending of stories, connections of dislocation, together with the video, the work becomes a meditation on land while discussing territories-borders and female bodies as territories for speculation, arguing that bodies are focal to the construction of territories. A subtle way to examine or look into the violent and often hidden stories of migration and a place to bring forward a conversation on women’s bodies as an object of extraction and its link to land as a resource of extraction.
