Pamela Phatsimo Sunstrum’s multidisciplinary practice encompasses drawing, painting, installation and animation. Her work alludes to mythology, geology and theories on the nature of the universe. Sunstrum’s works make reference to literature, film, theatre, and other forms of storytelling to build an ever-expanding narrative. These ongoing sagas unfold within terrains that appear simultaneously futuristic and ancient: a patchwork of remembered landscapes from her upbringing in places such as Botswana, Canada, Sudan, Sri Lanka, Malawi, Panama, and others. The characters in her work stand as a collective: a nebulous cast of bodies in constant flux amidst ever-slipping and insufficient notions of self-hood and belonging.
