Artist Statement:


    Interrogating intersecting modalities and technologies of power that reproduce colonial legacies in the everyday, Farouk works towards carving out spaces for playing with, looking at, discussing, speaking alongside/performing alternative and hidden archives. The way in which questions of gender, race, sexuality, class and the body/ embodied intersect with food, eating and foodways, can reveal a great deal about the ways in which colo- niality is reproduced as well as resisted, reimagined and unsettled in the present. Ismail wants to delve into these spaces of the intimate, the visceral, the eaten, the edible and practices of consumption in order to unsettle his own sensory and epistemic geographies of meaning, towards imagining alternate possibilities.
