Statement

Camille Chedda is a visual artist who utilizes drawing, painting, collage and installation to explore ideas around race and post-colonial identity. She works with everyday materials such as plastic bags, cement and concrete blocks as surfaces to be manipulated, or as stand alone objects that retain cultural significance. A recurrent theme in her work is construction, destruction and temporality. Even within her drawings and cement objects, there is an aspect of decay that is evoked. Chedda seeks to uncover and recover aspects of a lost identity through this process.
