Birdfeed by Karina Iskandarsjah

Responding to the topic of “florals and banquet” for the DawatYan Banquet, BIRDFEED is the start of an exploration of plant genuses as a way to form connections across different cultures and histories. With immigrant narratives as the central focus, this video installation weaves together plant research, poetry, theory, and the artist’s personal journal entries.
