"There's an old saying in Malayalam, the language of Kerala, India: 'Kakka kulichal kokkakumo?', which roughly translates to 'Can a crow take a bath and become a crane?'. This saying, rooted in the ideas of identity and self-acceptance, propels the work I create about my cultural heritage and family."
