Badra Aji works mainly with drawing and video, creating tangible artefacts of examination of life experience. By creating disjuncture between imagery and language, the artist frequently positions the viewer as an outsider – replicating his own alienated status as an immigrant and a queer person of colour.

Describing the work here, Aji has said: ‘I often feel displaced, I feel lost in my home country as a queer person and I face a lot of internalised racism within the queer community in Australia. I draw from this experience in my practice currently.’
