Having two ethnicities, requires two identities.

As someone with two identities, I have been longing to fit-in for nearly all my life. I often ended up in uncomfortable situations, where people expected me to make a choice between my two ethnicities. “What ethnicity do you relate to the most?” or “Which one do you prefer?”. For an ‘in-between’ person, these kinds of questions are impossible to answer. Hence, my project Unganisha, referring to ‘merge’ in Swahili. An installation in which I break through my identity crisis and define what culture and identity mean to me. Unganisha embraces the division and unites the different cultural heritages. It is a visualization of myself as an individual, converging historical conflicts into harmony.
