With a multi-disciplinary approach in her art and performance practice, Dominique creates powerful images that disturb structures of society and identity and explore the gaps in between. The body’s interaction with its surroundings is the starting point of her practice. She employs techniques that lead to deep listening and from this, develops connections through various means and media.
Her journeys are a conscious way to address outsider identities as an artist. Being from a mixed background, Indian and French and growing up in Europe and Africa, her references are varied, pushing her to constantly question the concept of ‘otherness’ within her own experience of the unknown. This unknown for her becomes a way to dismantle the ‘taken for granted’ aspect of things. Her present research is concerned with notions of (self) consciousness and the relationship to time and value.
Dominique is based between London and Berlin and has presented work internationally in France, Germany, Japan, Norway, Spain, Switzerland,USA, Armenia, India and Zimbabwe. She is currently a PhD candidate in the Department of Art at Goldsmiths University of London.
