I sewed my ancestral migration patterns, as far back as my great-great grandparents (which is as far back as our history has been “recorded” since the genocide) onto a map I drew on a paper bag. Gifted it to my mother and sit with it every time I visit her.
Kamee was born to an Armenian family by way of the SWANA region. They arrive in the world today as a queer mother and an interdisciplinary creative, producer, and facilitator. Their work is primarily collaborative, spiralling in-to and out-of fragmented time/place/being through ancestral reclamation, diasporic futurism, and radical imaginaries.
