About the Exhibition
‘When I was a child I thought the moon followed me’ is Alka Dass’ first solo exhibition at 99 Loop. Often feeling misplaced in society’s constructed groups, Dass explores both the overlap and tension between cultural identifiers and individuality in an effort to define 'belonging'. At surface level, a visual-psychological interpretation of women of colour is one way to describe her work, but upon delving further into her craft, the reclamation of lineage and ancestry emerge as prominent themes.
