as a visual/performance artist, ila employs the use of practical lights, moving images and live contemporary performance elements to create her own narratives. she pushes the boundaries of her physical being, using her body as a space of tension, negotiation and confrontation. ila often creates works that spark conversations and generate discussions about the female individual/collective in relation to present societies. she seeks to create alternative nodes of experience and entry points into the peripheries of the unspoken, the tacit and the silenced. she weaves imagined narratives with existing realities, with light as her medium of choice, and invisible communities as her point of interest.
