Maya Gurung-Russell Campbell
Drawing inspiration from the longstanding traditions of mask-making and masquerade in the Caribbean and Nepal, Brixton-based artist Maya Gurung-Russell Campbell creates evocative landscapes that explore her dual heritage in a range of mediums. Incorporating sound, moving image, oral history, poetry and analogue photography, her practice centres matrilineal mythologies and lived experience, whilst still interrogating universal themes.
Currently she is looking to music and movement as forms of liberation within the African diaspora, activating the site of the black female body as both an archive and a space of transcendence beyond the confines of categorisation.
