Artist Statement
Lani Asuncion works in video, sculpture, performance, and digital storytelling that explores the sociopolitics of community. By using her body and the camera she is able to navigate landscapes and recall personal stories that are transformed into abstract narratives used to explore her identity as a multicultural, biracial Asian American woman, continually discovering the negotiation of belonging. She is interested in how stories can be used to explore generations of change, loss, and transformation. Through new media, Asuncion communicates with a digital language that transcends race and class enabling the creation of a new contextual mix of a place, memory, and conjuring of a reconstructed past.
