Documenting, practicing, making

Gugan’s work delves into capturing the life story, attending to often overlooked South Asian narratives and histories. A sense of domestic feminism is woven throughout her work. She focuses on the voices of the women in her life, seeking to understand and document the passing down of cultures and heritage, highlighting the importance of community in understanding our situated experiences within the world.

With a dedication to storytelling, Gugan‘s work documents and preserves histories, using them to inform our practice of everyday life, attending to domestic settings such as the home and the garden.
