This Could Be the Place: Abedar Kamgari - Untitled

Food has always been integral to Abedar Kamgari's relationship with cultural identity. Diet can change based on a variety of factors, ranging from income and free time to climate, health and availability. Turmeric is a staple spice in her traditional cuisine, but one that she gradually stopped using after coming to Canada – for fear of its characteristic smell marking my body. In this experimental performance, Abedar Kamgari plays with turmeric as a tool for claiming space for brown bodies in public space and within institutions. // Abedar Kamgari is an artist, independent curator, and arts worker based in Hamilton and Toronto.
