These works highlight conversations on Twitter following the death of Queen Elizabeth II on 8 September. Conversations/arguments between citizens of former British colonies (especially in Africa) who are angry about the monarchy’s lack of remorse for colonial atrocities. And supporters of the monarchy, who either feel that it’s not the right time to have such conversations, or that if they do, they should acknowledge them as liberators rather than perpetrators. I then deliberately show these conversations with visuals and timelines of events that show the actual historical context they are based on, to let the facts speak for themselves.

This collection encompasses a series of thought-provoking works in which I aim to illuminate and interrogate the kinds of discussions that are addressing the diverse dynamics of oppression. Through these artworks, I hope to highlight the importance of engaging in meaningful conversations that address the many facets of oppression in our society.
