Jo SiMalaya Alcampo is an interdisciplinary artist born in Maynila the capital of the Philippines and raised in Malvern in the heart of Scarborough. Her interactive mixed media projects explore intersectionality, cultural/body memory and soul wounds.
She combines various forms of artistic expression including sculpture, installation, sound art, electronics, photography, film/video and performance.
Jo travelled to the Philippines to learn how artists can develop an ethical code of conduct when incorporating Indigenous Cultural Knowledge into our artwork.
One response to this ongoing journey is the interactive installation Singing Plants Reconstruct Memory.
