Bayjoo's practice explores the territory between abstraction and images of a metaphorical nature from cartographic, mythic and religious traditions. Using multiple layers of translucent patterns and marks, a loose abstract landscape is presented. Images are broken down and reexplored, offering to the viewer compositions that are often culturally or politically emotive, subtle and removed from its literal context. The video works push further the idea of shared identity and experience.
Looking into the narrative of disappearing identities, I look away from my own cultural heritage, finding common ground with lesser-known realities: Shiraz Bayjoo
